What's Up?

  • Holly's Favorite Color

    When Holly visits, we want to know all about her, including her favorite color! 

    Mr. Ed has no idea what it was so we decided to do a little research and try out

     own experiment. Many people often say dogs are colorblind, however our research

     told us that they are not. They see more than just black, white, and gray. However,

     the color range they perceive is limited compared to the spectrum we see. The 

    canine color field consists mostly of yellows, blues, and violets. We decided to put

    out a few different colored pieces of paper with Holly’s favorite Turkey Jerky treats. 

    Holly walked across the room, stopped to check it out and went to the blue piece of

     paper BOTH times we tried it! We think Holly’s favorite color is blue! Stay tuned for 

    our third trial in a few weeks!

    Check out pictures from our second trial of our experiment!

  • Entrepreneurs Rock!

    A group of amazing local entrepreneurs visited UNC 
    Hospital School yesterday. They each shared their 
    impressive professional journeys and how collaboration
     is a key to their success. The students LOVED the 
    workshop and asked tons of insightful questions.
