Under the Bay Exhibit in Discovery Lab

Posted by Laurie Sullivan at 9/28/2014

Barrettstudents have been visiting the Under the Bay exhibit on display in theDiscovery Lab. The exhibit is on loan from the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News. If you are ever in Williamsburg, you may consider driving a little further south to visit the museum. It is a wonderful place to explore. For the exhibit this year we placed a QR code on many of theanimals. Students scan the QR code with their iPads and it links to anaudio podcast about the animal created by Barrett 4th & 5th graders. Many thanks to the Engineer Tom Fund for sponsoring this exhibit, whichwill remain at Barrett an additional two weeks. Engineer Tom, whopassed away last year, loved the enthusiasm for science exhibited byBarrett 5th graders. I’m thrilled that Tom’s wife, Pat Jennings, visitedthe exhibit on Tuesday and was able to see the students in action.
