Lewis Ginter's own Early Childhood Program Developer, Kristin Mullen, led our tour and was kind enough to mention our visit in a recent LGBG blog post. She was impressed by the children's ability to take charge of their own wormy investigations. She aptly described what many observers to our classroom notice: that while our project work may seem chaotic, the children are working, thinking, and communicating like scientists working in true hands-on fashion.
