Students build a paper glider and test it for forces of flight.
Students explore various aspects of flight and apply their knowledge by designing and testing paper planes.
Read "Greg's Microscope" and learn about microscopes by building your own.
Read "Who Likes the Wind?" and learn about wind and renewable energy.
Read "Curious George and the Hot Air Balloon" and learn about the properties of light.
Students see how different amounts of air and water in a space can change the way we hear sounds.
Students explore the science of sound by creating their own "Walkman" which transmits vibrations through a piece of string.
Students will use a special type of paper that is sensitive to the sun to create fun prints and designs on the paper using sunlight.
Students will do a variety of activities listed on their "Summer Time Bucket List" and try to check off as many activities as possible over the course of the summer break.
Students will be introduced to a refraction - when light bends it passes from one material to another.
Students learn about conservation of energy, measure the bounce of a ball at different heights and then use elastic potential energy to make a paper glider fly having kinetic energy.
