Mobile Science Lab Visits Saint Matthias

Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation’s Mobile Science Laboratory made its third visit in three years to Saint Matthias in March of 2015.  The lab, funded by a grant from the Catholic Business Network of Prince George’s County, allowed students to participate in hands-on, agriculturally based experiments and workshops.

Students participated in activities like making crayons and butter, examine grains, learned about making plastics from corn, and made an organic lip balm!


The science education program at Saint Matthias includes guest speakers, field trips, and special on-campus opportunities like this one.
