Excerpt from ABC news:

 

Owings Mills, Md - Students are hard at work at Jemicy Lower and Middle School campus in Owings Mills in Baltimore County. They are making bird houses.

"It's a great addition to Jemicy because we can do more activities here than we could do in the old science room.  We can plant more seeds. We can learn more because we have bigger spaces. We have more supplies," said Hailey Fried, fourth grade student at Jemicy School.

Jemicy School's new Green Science Classroom allows for hands on learning for students.  Jemicy serves students with dyslexia and other related language based learning differences.

Dyslexic students are gifted in science.  The new science building allows them to enhance their gift.

"This is a place that invites kids to see how they engage with the environment and that is what science should be about.  It's not about what happens in a lab. It's about engaging with the full world," said Dr. Emily Stanley, Chair Jemicy Lower and Middle School Science Department.

The new classroom offers environmentally friendly aspects. They have an indoor Greenhouse Bay for Planting projects.
