Back to School – An American Story of Science in the Classroom
As Fall approaches, and kids head back to school, I recall many memories of grammar school as I suspect we all do. Did your 2nd-grade class collect butterflies or rocks? Once you made it to middle school, were you the star of the science fair? And in high school, perhaps you showed your scientific expertise with a solar energy experiment. I know I was engaged in all these activities but never gave any thought to how the materials that sparked our imagination were selected or provided. There is a market segment of distributors that specifically serves education, specializing in school science supplies. One such distributor is Carolina Biological Supply Company, located in Burlington, North Carolina.
