  • Bio Trip
     
    Students in Ms. Sotomayor's biology class took a trip to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. They had a chance to explore the different exhibits and complete an assignment in the hall of human origins as a complement to their current unit of study. A few lucky students from the group were invited backstage to meet a Smithsonian entomologist and had the chance to ask questions and view the private insect research collection!
