Science Lesson

Hammond Westside Montessori Students Learn Science from Special Guest

Dr. Candace Lawrence from Xavier University spoke to a group of 5th graders on Monday, March 11,  about DNA and Polymer Science.  Students learned how different molecules interact and how chemists use properties of chemicals to create safe medicines for humans.  Students were able to mix some polymers to create a gel-like substance to show that gel capsule medicine is safe for the body,  and it's the same process they use to make gummy worms!
