Oregon Primate Research Center Guest Speaker

rVaMRSDHwFcJmkZ1K7aEAmIKb2QrITxzBLZV4mUiRDoThis afternoon, Diana Gordon, from the Oregon Primate Research Center, presented information about biomedical research to our 4/5 students. Her presentation will help students learn about what the center does and how biomedical research is conducted so that they gain a better understanding of next week’s field trip to the Primate Center.

On Friday, May 22nd, our students will be taking a trip to the Oregon Primate Research Center, which is part of OHSU. Students will need to either bring a sack lunch with a disposable drink container, OR order a sack lunch through the cafeteria. A field trip permission slip was sent out with our students today. 

On Tuesday, May 12th we will have an interactive presentation with Diana Gordon, the Education Outreach Coordinator for the Research Center. She will give a 45 minute presentation helping students and any interested parents understand biomedical research: what it is, why we do it, and why we need to use animals. She will be presenting to Mr. Evers’ class at 1:30 pm and Mrs. Reed’s class at 2:20 pm.

For the field trip we will need several chaperones. If we have more people interested than we can take, parents will be chosen by lottery on May 7th. If you are interested in chaperoning, please fill out the section indicated on the field trip permission form, which was handed out to students today.
