Globally Warmed Depression

Global warming

is the daily warning,

lying out of sight

We hope to see a ray of light.

Silently melting away

what the polar bears live to crave.

Silently digging our graves.

Students participate in hands-on science.

They meet scientists and can see scientists doing their work.

They learn about careers in science.

Through Ohio State’s Economic Access Initiative, they receive age-appropriate information about planning for college.

By producing an electronic presentation of their work, they reflect on what they learned and share it with others.

  • We didn’t know many fragrances in perfumes are composed from plants.
  • We LOVE chocolate. Did you know chocolate is made out of plant?
