  • When my daughter was in 7th grade, we worked together and packed an 'animal cell' both for her science project and her lunch. One stone, two birds!

    The animal cell looked vivid, and seemed delicious. We gave each other a pack on the back, exchanged a high-five, and left it in the fridge for the night.

    The next day was sunny and warm! In the middle of September, New York is a pleasant place for anything and everyone!

    The 'animal cell' enjoyed a four-hour-incubation time on my daughter's desk. Amazingly, still looked pretty good for her science class (see picture); however, nurtured too many forms of 'tiny lives', and gave out some 'funny' smells.

    My daughter was not the only one in her class who 'skipped' lunch that day!
