Developmental Cell Biologist Dr. Brian Mitchell from Northwestern University taught the Whittier 4th/5th grade class all about frog development during his Science Alliance classroom visits.

After one of his visits, Ms. Darley wrote: “Great visit today from our Science Alliance Scientist, Dr. Brian Mitchell. He shared slides and videos of microscopic cell divisions and the kids set up experiments with tadpole embryos in various conditions. The kids were really excited about his work, made relevant comments, and asked great questions related to the set-up of the experiment and tadpole development. Thank you Brian – you’re officially in the Whittier Scientist Hall of Fame!”
