Shell Beach Elementary 6th grade class from visits Strawberry Center

Led by teacher Danielle Blauer, other teachers and parent chaperones, over 50 sixth graders from Shell Beach Elementary School visited the Strawberry Center. Field Technician Lawson Orradre and Research Manager Kyle Blauer led the tour, which included a trip to our fields along with basic descriptions of strawberry growing, breeding and reproduction. The students were especially primed and excited about these topics as they are currently learning about inheritance and genetic variation in their science program. The tour culminated with a fun opportunity to pick fresh strawberries and fill as many clamshells as the students could carry back to the bus! According to Mrs. Blauer, “our students had a GREAT time on this trip and we are hoping to come back again next spring!”.
