Mrs. Connie Lupold's Fifth Grade Science students have been visiting far-away science labs and meeting with renowned scientists thanks to unique lessons made possible through enrollment in Microsoft's Skype-a-Scientist program. The program is giving Mrs. Lupold's students an opportunity to meet "real scientists" and interact with them in 60-minute question and answer sessions. The goal of the program is to have students learn more about science while forming personal connections with individuals working in a scientific field. Scientists lined up to meet with SCA's Middle School students include those with expertise in health service research with a focus on EMS treatment, insect evolution, and immunology of burn injuries.
 
 
Manpreet K. Kohli, a Rutgers University graduate student with expertise in insect evolution, discusses the evolution of dragonflies from her laboratory in Newark.
