On Friday Jan 31st, the UNF Biology Club led a hands on science demonstration at the Mali Vai Washington Kids Foundation.  The foundation was founded by Wimbledon champion and UNF alumni, Mali Vai Washington.  The foundation seeks to improve children’s lives in and out of the classroom in the historic Durkeeville neighborhood of downtown Jacksonville.  The UNF Biology Club led two, 1 hr science sessions for 20 second and third graders.  The club covered the basics of microbiology and the importance of proper hand washing and hygiene.  The club also led children in viewing wet mount slides and prepared slides under the microscope.
