Dr. Doug visits Lemira


Dr. Doug, an internationally renowned oceanographer and geo-scientist, joined Lemira Elementary School second-graders in the STEM Lab. Chyna Whitted is closest to Dr. Doug with Sha'Zyria Prince watching at left. The students learned about matter and were able to explore science with the guidance of a chemist by using beakers to measure the mystery liquid and observing properties of different forms of matter. With more than 30 years of teaching experience at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Doug expanded his instruction to children and families in 2004 by creating science programming for EdVenture Children's Museum in Columbia. Since 2006, he has introduced S.C. educators to a collection of standards-based science programs for elementary and middle school students.
