Beau Young checks out pond water under a microscope.
Indian Lake Middle School 5th-graders are getting a glimpse of how real scientists make discoveries. Science teachers Jana McPherson and Brian Tidwell started off the year by asking students to examine nearby pond water using scientific tools such as microscopes, triple beam balances, graduated cylinders and more. Students are also learning about different kinds of scientists like biologists, botanists, geologists, meteorologists and others.
