Scientist Inspires Sixth Graders at LOMS
Sixth graders in Karen Davis’s science classes at Lincoln Orens Middle School in Island Park met virtually with University of Michigan Professor Julie Biteen on April 14 and 15. Four separate sessions offered opportunities for students to ask questions and learn about Biteen’s work as a scientist and researcher in the fields of chemistry and biophysics.
Professor Biteen discussed her role as a professor and shared her passion for science, her experiences in running her own lab and making new discoveries. Several students shared that they aspire to become scientists in the future, and Biteen advised them stay committed to their schoolwork, continue learning and speak with professionals in the careers that interest them.
