KIM Visits Alderwood Middle School
KIM stopped by Alderwood Middle School today to teach 2 modules - heart and DNA - to a select group of 8th grade students. This field trip was organized by their fellow classmate, Katie Shieff, who even handled the fundraising! The students were so happy to do the dissection and later the cheek cell extraction. They seemed to really learn a lot and enjoy our visit. Thanks for having us guys, and great job Katie! SEE MORE
Ldub Girls Are Back!
KIM kicked off the week with 8th graders from Lake Washington Girls Middle School! The girls participated in our DNA module. They really enjoyed the candy DNA (who doesn't?!) and the cheek cell extraction. We're thrilled to be able to say that after this class, we've been lucky to teach all the Ldub girls! You girls are awesome and we love having you visit!
KIM Welcomes Glide High School!
KIM was thrilled to close out the week with 11th & 12th graders from Glide High School! This group drove all the way from southern Oregon to spend the week in Seattle on a science field trip - we were so lucky to have them visit us! The day was spent focusing on the countless science jobs related to STEM, and especially those within our Foundation. Students got to dissect & prep pig hearts, view human specimens, perform endoscopy, edit video, paint heart valves, and much more. Thank you so much for letting us spend the day with you and we truly hope you enjoyed your visit with us!!! SEE MORE

Outreach to Einstein Middle School
KIM traveled to Einstein Middle School this week to explore the heart with all the 7th graders! We spent 2 days teaching in Ms. Camp, Ms. Smith, and Ms. Attebery's classrooms. The students were so great and really asked some thoughtful questions. A huge thanks goes out to our awesome volunteers - Fred, Lori, and Jim - as well as to all the amazing parents who came and helped out!!
