Chippewa Elementary School students were recently introduced to areas of biology and entomology with help from two assistant professors from the Department of Biology at Farmingdale State College.

Cell biologist Dr. Azad Gucwa visited Donna Gianfortone’s first-grade class and Laura Seguna’s fourth-grade class to guide students through a hands-on learning activity utilizing foldscopes and paper microscopes.

As part of an additional activity, Dr. Carly Tribull taught students about entomology and the importance of insects as she spoke about her unique collection of insects.
