Gene Research Scientist, Jason Bryan, Visits 5th Grade

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 03/20/2019 - 15:10

Mr. Jason Bryan, from Sorenson Genomics, visited Taylor's 5th grade classes as they study heredity and genetics.  Mr. Bryan, who also has a 5th grader at Taylor,  works specifically with human DNA inherited from parents.  He explained to the classes his educational pathway in his science career which started right in an elementary classroom.  He graduated from UVU and is now a research scientist.

In the biotechnology field, students can earn a college degree, use problem solving skills, math, computers, and a lot of curiosity. Many scientists in his field use their gene knowledge in forensics, disease/disorder testing and family trees.    This was a very informative presentation to help introduce the posibilities in the field of genetics!

Taylor Elementary's fourth-grade classes were recently visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition. Students were educated by Ms. Jenny Devlin on the importance of stormwater and how not to pollute it. Students were also taught the steps of the water cycle and how it impacts each other's daily lives. Fourth-grade student, Thatcher Sumens, says, "It is important not to litter or put paint and garbage in the gutters because we need to use the water that goes in there." This is always a great time of year for students to be visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition!

Monday, March 4th will be a district minimal day. All students will be dismissed at 12:00pm. Our lunch hour will run approximately 1 hour early (10:40-11:40am) and as always, school lunch will be available during this time. If you do not want your child to eat school lunch because of afternoon plans we would encourage you to send them with a snack and ask them not to select to eat. This will allow our lunch department to plan enough but not too much food for those students who want to eat.
