UTeach Outreach keeps a positive environment for the students to grow individually and makes teaching and learning in the classroom fun!  


Lesson 1: This week was filled with lots of fun, action, and excitement at Mendez Middle School! We got to simulate natural selection on the computer with wolves and bunnies. After tinkering with the simulation and playing out different outcomes, our Mighty Mendez Mustangs learned new vocabulary words such as “adaptive radiation” and “natural selection.” Finally, we related the lesson to historical events with Charles Darwin and his studies regarding Finches and the Galapagos Islands
