bubble 2

Jefferson Elementary celebrated the end of the year with their annual science day.   This year Edgerton Explorit Center was our presenter.  It started off with a whole school assembly full of fun science experiments such as launching rockets in the air, balancing and throwing a ball to learn about gravity, learning how strong an astronaut needs to be in space…which is much stronger than you would think!  Each grade was also able to attend a special session to learn about things such as bubbles and electromagnetic shock giving each student an opportunity to really get their “hands on science”.  Throughout the day each class was able to go through over 25 individual hands on displays letting them learn about science through play.  They were able to see black light, use a vacuum to hold balls in the air, make noise with a old pot with water, build towers and play drums were just to name a few!  In addition to all the group sessions provided the teachers all did fun science experiments throughout the day in their classrooms.  Some examples were making gak, baking bread & butter, homemade ice-cream, crystal snowflakes and work with magnets and electricity.  It was a day full of hands on learning for both students and teachers and many memories were made!
