A Practical Approach to Science
In the spirit of all that is 2020, Unit II students on the Doherty Campus made hand sanitizer. The educational activity was part of Sherri Linville’s unit of the respiratory system. “The students made connections about the coronavirus and its threat to the respiratory system,” said Linville. As third-grader Sarah Hassell explained, “It’s the system that the coronavirus can infect.” While masked and social distancing, the student scientists mixed aloe and 99.9% isopropyl alcohol to produce their own pump bottle of hand sanitizer.
