Upper Elementary

This past week we kicked off the inaugural Upper Elementary STEM program by creating an apple raft. This fun project allowed students to learn about the properties of matter firsthand as they experimented and measured density, buoyancy, weight, balance, and stability of their crafted rafts.

Before the end of September, students will also engineer “Rockin’ school buses” and design pom-pom slingshots as we study motion, stability, forces and their interactions. We liked to thank all families who donated supplies to the Upper Elementary classroom.

We are excited to dive into out STEM challenges of pumpkin catapults, candy towers, and spider web bridges in October. Be sure to check your Monday folder for periodic supply lists- you might have something around the house that will suit our experiments’ needs!
