Science Club



Each Monday and Friday morning a group of fourth grade students and a group of fifth grade students meet for a before-school enrichment program. This program is designed to promote inquiry- based learning and engagement through projects, demonstrations, and hands-on activities which correlate to and extend the science standards of learning.

This program assists students in developing STEM skills and gives them the opportunity to apply their understanding to learn how the worldworks. This year students have created complex machines using K’Nex building materials, built scale hydrodynamic factories, and constructed complex moving machines with Lego WeDo kits. The students have produced paper from recycled materials, generated a polymer substance, and have explored numerous chemical reactions.

The culminating activity will pit the two clubs against each other to see which group can create the best machine that will enable an egg to survive being thrown from a height of twenty feet. This activity will truly show if the students have gained valuable problem solving skills.
