Students Join in ‘Hatch the Chicken’ Educational Program

Eighth-graders in Amanda Stavish and Michelle Weston’s  science classes at Mars Area Middle School are studying the embryonic development and the cellular process as part of a “Hatch the Chicken” educational program.

During a five-week period, students tracked the development of several fertilized chicken eggs. The eighth-graders then cared for the chicks during the last two weeks of the program.  All equipment and materials for the project were provided through the Western Pennsylvania “Hatch the Chicken” program.
