To help students better understand a variety of STEM-related careers and professions, R.C. Murphy Junior High School has initiated a program called “Lunch with a Scientist.” 

During the first event, the science department welcomed Dr. Sheri Glazer, who spoke with a group of seventh graders about the science of dentistry and the various career options in her field. She discussed how dental science requires a strong understanding of mathematics and biology, beyond the mouth. She also spoke about the different types of dentistry there are and the supportive professionals that assist each dentist. 

The project tied well into the grade level curriculum, which focuses on life sciences, and the department looks forward to welcoming additional speakers in the future.
