Eighth Grade Science Studies Microbiology

Brenda Wahlers, a medical lab technician at Stamford Hospital in Connecticut, visited Mrs. Hajem's eighth grade science class to talk about what it takes to be a lab tech and show students some samples of bacterial plates. Students had the opportunity to do some gram staining - a technique that allows you to see bacteria under a microscope.

Mrs. Wahlers has 20 years experience "running the labs" on blood work, throat cultures, and nose swabs. We thank her for visiting campus and teaching our Middle School science students about microbiology.
