Clarksville, TN – In order to help provide a fun, educational opportunity for K-5 students and free time for our student-parents to complete their online course materials, Austin Peay State University (APSU) Professor Dr. Christopher Gentry will host “Science Story Time with APSU Geosciences” via Zoom at 1:00pm Wednesday, April 29th, 2020.
