Students get visit from mobile science lab

November 17, 2018

LYMAN — Lyman Elementary School students got a science lesson Thursday when the Science Adventure Lab operated by Seattle Children’s Hospital made a visit to the school.

The custom-built, 45-foot state-of-the-art mobile science lab uses research-grade equipment to teach students.

While Lyman Elementary’s fourth-graders attended a lesson titled “Seeking the Sugar Solution,” the fifth- and sixth-graders attended lessons called “What is your DNA?”

In the DNA lessons, the fifth- and sixth- graders were able to see their DNA under a microscope after a quick cheek swab and solution preparation that they performed under the direction of the science lab’s staff.

The Science Adventure Lab, which launched in 2009, travels to schools throughout Washington.
