How We Grow

The Partnership in Education is a program located at Duquesne University that is passionate about improving STEM education and health literacy. Funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, we specialize in creating innovative, hands-on educational products that make science engaging and fun for teachers, their students, and learners of all ages.

Learn about how different living things grow and develop! Sammy has to write an essay for his science class on growth and development, but he just doesn’t understand what’s interesting about how we grow. That is, until his room starts to come to life! The bacteria in his shoes, the sea creatures on his wall mural, his pet zebra fish, and a stuffed chicken teach Sammy about the incredible ways that life develops and grows. Sammy learns about his own growth from a single cell, and that he still has a lot of growing to do!
