Hydrology

Although there is plenty of water on earth, it is not always in the right place, at the right time and of the right quality. Students will create and study their own watershed to demonstrate how rainfall is channeled and collected. Once the water is collected students will assess potential pollution sources, test water, and discuss current water conservation habits.

Renewable Resources

Through demonstrations, students will learn what energy is, and the different forms it comes in, consider the impact of human energy use and innovate ways to conserve and use resources sustainably.

Photosynthesis

Shine light on how plants make food. Take a journey inside a leaf, learning all about photosynthesis and how it is essential for all life on Earth.

Weather Phenomenon

There are socially and scientifically constructed understandings of what weather is and what makes it change. Students will conduct experiments that demonstrate how the weather is driven and how temperatures differ from polar to tropical regions of the earth.

 

Natural Phenomenon

Students will investigate the natural phenomenon of Electricity, Magnetism, Gravity, and Electromagnetism through hands-on activities and experiments.

Coding

Without the use of computers, learn basic coding concepts; sequences, logic, and variable loops through a gamified experience, making coding your student’s second language.
