Methodist Mansfield Gives Sight to Middle School Students

Mansfield ISD middle school science teachers received Smart MicroScopes that allow students to see things enlarged with variable magnification up to 200x to support science education in middle schools. The Smart Microscope connects directly to the teacher’s computer or laptop and allow students to examine organisms, animal cell organelles, cell membrane, cell wall, nucleus, cytoplasm, mitochondrion, chloroplast and vacuole to name a few.  Methodist Mansfield funded The Mansfield ISD education grant to bring Smart MicroScopes to 2,537 students.

“We are excited to support these middle school students with an education grant,” Methodist Mansfield John Phillips says. “Supporting science education is a part of Methodist Mansfield’s involvement in the community, contributing to the development and growth of future health science students.”

Seven teachers will participate in the program including Ryan Taylor, Melissa Cross, Rebecca Rojas, Julia Stephen, Jeff Tamplen, Jessica Wommack and Craig Comolli. The grant was written by science coordinator Fred Garza.

“Bring Smart MicroScopes into the classroom through software is a powerful,” Linda Bacsik, Executive Director of the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation says. “The students are eager to learn and the teachers are excited to teach. We want to extend learning and thinking as they prepare for the future.”
