Hemmeter Elementary School hosted the Food, Agriculture & Resources in Motion (FARM) Science Lab on May 2-4. This 40-foot mobile classroom is a project of the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture and Michigan Farm Bureau. Its mission is to increase agricultural literacy through Science, Techonology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based lessons which match national educational standards. Visiting educators taught each class of students a 30-50 minute lesson chosen by Hemmeter teachers in each grade level. Lessons included Build-AFarm in grades kindergarten-second, Resourceful Bean in third grade, Field Plastic in fourth grade, and Extraction of Life (DNA) in fifth grade. Hemmeter teacher Linda Laurenz arranged the lab visit, which was made possible by grants from the STCS Education Foundation, Saginaw Farm Bureau, and the Hemmeter Parent Teacher Council.
