Conneaut sixth-graders get hands-on experience at KSUA

(Continued)



The academic areas the students were exposed to included math, science, nursing, business, theater arts, library science, biology, English and physical therapy.

“I talk about college all the time to my students, but here they get to experience it, and many of them have never seen Kent-Ashtabula,” said J.C. Lenk, Conneaut Middle School teacher.

Kayla Masirovits has dreams of becoming a doctor or occupational therapist someday, and the sixth-grader was impressed with her visit to KSUA.

“In the biology class, we got to see the DNA of a strawberry. That was fun and different,” she said.

Student Aaron Ledlow was thrilled with what he had experienced throughout the morning, especially in biology.

“I got to touch a human brain and see some cells under a microscope,” he said. “I want to go to college. I want to be a carpenter and a cartoonist.”
