Churchville Elementary School Welcomes Embryology Science Project Chicks

Chicks have hatched through­out the month of June in Council Rock’s Churchville Elementary School as part of the 4th Grade Embryology Project made pos­si­ble by CREF with sup­port from Customers Bank. A spe­cial thank you to Customers Bank for mak­ing it pos­si­ble for all of our 4th-grade stu­dents and class­rooms to par­tic­i­pate in this expe­ri­ence through­out the Council Rock School District. The Embryology Project is an inno­v­a­tive District-wide S.T.E.A.M. (sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, engi­neer­ing, art, and math) project that allows more than 800 4th graders the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about the stages of embry­on­ic devel­op­ment as they incu­bate, observe, record data, and hatch avian eggs. This inter­ac­tive learn­ing project enhances the cur­rent Council Rock School District 4th-grade cur­ricu­lum. And just in case you are won­der­ing, these chicks will go to a farm in Bucks County and live as pets.
