MUW professor to teach home schooled students lab work
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Dr. Marty L. Harvill, associate professor of science and math at Mississippi University for Women, will once again teach home schooled students laboratory work on campus.
This is the first year that Harvill will use renovated Parkinson Hall for these laboratory exercises.
“The laboratories are designed to give home school students a chance to conduct basic laboratory exercises in areas of physical science, biology and environmental science. Students will be able to use different laboratory equipment with the help of a science and math faculty member.
“Home school students will have a chance to conduct four different experiments over the course of two Fridays. Two experiments will be physics and two will be biology related. These students will get a chance to conduct four hands-on experiments using scientific equipment to collect and graph data.”
Students in grade levels eighth through 12th can participate. Each class is $15, and the Office of Academic Affairs will provide lunch for the students.
Harvill said, “Dr. Eddie Estalote (science and math instructor) will be conducting the morning physics labs and I will conduct the afternoon biology labs.”
He expects 12 to 14 students per lab.
