Sumter Today: Furman Middle School students continue their learning over the summer


Students enrolled in the summer STEM/STEAM class at Furman Middle School had the opportunity this week to take part in one of two special classes.
Eighth graders learned about allergies and were asked to solve a mystery involving dinner out with the family and a severe allergic reaction.
Seventh graders performed simple gel electrophoresis and analysis to get introduced to this biotechnology tool.
Both classes were part of the Mobile Science Laboratory Program that allows the technology and expertise of the Greenwood Genetic Center to come directly to schools and engage students in STEM initiatives and South Carolina Science Standards.
