Four-State kids learn about George Washington Carver's scientific studies

Updated:
Some kids in the Four States not only know a little more about George Washington Carver, but also his scientific studies.
Around 35 kids of all ages attended laboratory demonstrations at the George Washington Carver National Monument this afternoon.
From creating peanut milk and sweet potato flour, to learning about water quality testing, kids had the chance to learn firsthand about some of the things George Washington Carver studied during his time at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.
"I think there's a big chance for us to learn," said Erik Woodward, 1st grader.
"I've been reading about George Washington Carver in a book," said Bethany Woodward, 3rd grader.
"When kids come to a museum, there's really not a lot for them to do and this really offers them many different opportunities to do hands-on things, to engage their different learning styles," said Douglas Bazar, park guide at the George Washington Carver National Monument.
Demonstrations will also be presented at the park Visitor's Center again tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.
