Science Outreach

Science students at Tawanka Elementary School

A group of AP Environmental Science students from Neshaminy HS visited the first grade at Tawanka ES on June 8 to deliver a prevention program about lead poisoning. As part of a research project, they found out that lead levels in some parts of our area are high. As a response, they developed the presentation to educate young children about some basic precautions they can take to minimize lead exposure, including eating certain healthy foods, washing hands after playing outside, and leaving dirty shoes and sneakers at the door after returning inside.
