Learn about the Biologue Program for Young Scientists #handsonbio

Do your children love science? Do you have future scientists in your family? Are you interested in your children learning more about dissections, microscopy research, histology, anatomy and physiology? If so, be sure to marks your calendars for Browns Mill Recreation Center's open house day on  July 24, 2012 highlighting their science program, Biologue.

Our oldest son, Roland likes digging in the dirt, while our youngest son, Joshua enjoys dissecting bugs. Growing up in a household with a biologist (my Mom), my initial teaching to our boys love for science and technology was that it was in their genes. Instead of cringing when our youngest son picks up bugs, with caution I encourage him to learn more about them.

Having worked in higher education for over 10 years, I've discovered many programs that are available to students interested in the sciences. If your children are like mine, then they may have already expressed an interest in science. There are outstanding programs that prepare students with the Pathway to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs.The Biologue program will be highlighted at the Brown Mill Recreation Center's open house day on July 24th at 6:00 p.m. located at 5101 Browns Mill Road, Lithonia, Georgia 30038. This prestigious science program, Biologue caters to middle and high school students interested in science.

Through laboratory experiments students will have the opportunity to delve into a diverse repertoire of biology adventures.
