Mrs. Matthews Penicillin and Bacteria Necklaces
Mrs. Matthews class has been learning about unicellular organisms - including bacteria. Last week the students made bacteria beads out of play-doh during their centers. They also made a penicillin bead to "kill off" the bacteria. After allowing time for the play-doh to dry, the students then put all of their beads onto a necklace as they studied four famous scientists in the world of microbes (Fleming, Pasteur, Lister, and Salk). Today they learned that Alexander Fleming discovered

How Does the Worm Factory Work
The Worm Factory 360 is a home composting solution for your kitchen and household waste. Although this video was obviously made to promote the purchase of the Worm Factory 360, it does a very nice job of describing the basic process of how composting works.

Eastman Jazz: Two Ways to the Same Stage
Each spring, two of the big bands at Eastman, the Eastman Jazz Ensemble and the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble, put together a split concert that they perform in Kilbourn Hall. While the two bands have a similar makeup in terms of the size of the group and the instruments, they each take a very different approach to the music that they will play on the very same stage.
