Please note that our grants are NOT first-come, first served. If you meet the qualifications, you will receive a grant. Many teachers mistakenly think they have a better chance of receiving a grant if they apply early; however, they sometimes end up having to switch their grant to a different animal because of allergies, etc. that they were not aware of. It’s best to wait until you are sure that the animal is the right fit for the classroom before you apply. Teachers often like to involve their students in the decision-making process as well, having students research and then vote on the best animal for their classroom. This is a great team-building project and helps foster a sense of ownership.
Despite his objections, Ward was recruited onto the team regardless and ordered to pack his bags and regroup onboard the Bus , which would become his home for the coming months. Once onboard, Ward was introduced to Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons , the team's young scientists working on engineering and biochemistry who in turn enthusiastically greeted him before somewhat roughly taking his phone before smashing it and taking his DNA. As Simmons asked what his views were on joining the team and going on their mission, Ward sarcastically compared it to Christmas.
