Zebrafish Embryos

Dr. Michael Barresi, Dad to Sam in Ms. Derosier’s 5th grade class, facilitated a very cool science laboratory lesson for her students. He brought his lab equipment from Smith College, including a scope with a computer and a camera. Students observed  a single pair of adult fish (male and female) and made scientific observations about what they saw.  They observed  stages of embryos to  get a sense of developmental life cycles. Students learned about  mutants and discussed how traits are made ; and then what happens if a mutation occurs and how it’s inherited. Evolutionary change ,adaptations through mutations, and so much more rich science exploration!
 Thanks Michael for sharing your knowledge and passion for science with our 5th graders!!
