Science, Science Everywhere.....thanks to General Electric!

Once again our GE neighbor has been generous enough to support the implementation of the Science Program, KNOW ATOMS.   This program brings hands on Science experiments that require the students to use the Scientific Method.   In addition to their incredible generosity, the GE also allows engineers from the GE to visit and volunteer at the school.  This allows our students to benefit from the knowledge and experience of real life engineers.  We are truly fortunate and grateful to the GE because the KNOW ATOMS program is a gift to our students.  At this point students in Grades 3, 4 & 5 are involved.  Ask them about it!

Here our 4th graders have created a concoction to test density.  Our GE volunteer, watches closely.

On the same day, down the hall, the 5th graders were testing minerals.  Look at the intensity and involvement of the students.   Another GE volunteer, works with a small group testing minerals under special light.
