Reed College Biology Outreach Program Continues at Lewis

5th Grade Science Class From Reed College Reed College Science Class Again this school year 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at Lewis will benefit from the Reed College Biology Outreach Program. This continuing partnership between Reed and our school helps to enhance our science program by offering an inquiry-based science curriculum with Reed College biology faculty and Reed students who work with our students and teachers in our classroom. This years' focus is Watersheds and Fresh-water Ecology. As part of this unit students will be raising Chinook eggs provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife in our classrooms for release as fry into Reed College Canyon.
