STEAM Speaker Spotlight – Mrs. Jennifer Riser

Thank You, Mrs. Riser!

Mrs. Jennifer Riser, Research Scientist at Kemira, visited with our 7th graders during their science classes on Tuesday, November 14, 2017. Mrs. Riser talked about her career and what chemists do, pointing out that chemistry in part of everything around us. She also reviewed with the students what they’ve studied about cells. Students then had an opportunity to use microscopes and view various cells, including cells from their own cheeks! They were very excited to see nuclei and other organelles up close. It was such a fun and amazing experience. Thank you Mrs. Riser!
