Washington students are enjoying a movie today. Thank you Grand Theater for making this possible!! While many of our experiments have been successful, the rocky candy was a failure. It did not crystalize. Why? Could be many reasons... not enough sugar (really? after 30 pounds!!), could have been the coloring. Could be the HEAT! That's what we are blaming it on. The cooler lines sprung a leak, so we were not able to run the air conditioning in the gym until repaired. Thank you WPS custodians for fixing this!!
Washington students went on a bird walk. We pretended we were the birds and had to decide as a team, what would be the best supplies to make a bird nest. The next day, we built our nests. The ultimate challenge, then, was to see if it would keep our eggs safe! (Remember the slime - we kept it in our eggs). We had some successes!!
Slimed! WPS students experienced slime! A little glue, some baking soda and a squirt or two of saline solution and a whole lot of fun!!
And the adventures continue... On day 6 WPS students began an experiment with sugar crystals. I wonder how long it will take?
WPS Summer School is passing quickly. To celebrate week 1 we finalized our Salt crystal experiment, and enjoyed some outdoor fun time and SNOW CONES! A giant Thank you to Mark Schroeder. Find that truck.. the snow cones are yummy!
On day 4, WPS students learned about sun-safety and how sunscreen works. We painted with sunscreen. Look what happens after they bake in the sun for awhile!

STEM day 3 at WPS. We have some budding architects! Once the built, and rebuilt, they had to draw their design. We also recorded observations of our salt crystal growth - chemistry? or would it be geology? Then, we "planted" lima bean - with no dirt! This way we can really observe what happens when a plant grows - future farmers! Our community will need all of these!!
Day 2. Washington Primary Students set up their next experiment. We learned salt tastes yucky!! It disappears in water. But... what happens next? We'll have to wait and see what grows!!
Washington students are exploring STEM activities during summer school! On Day 1 we made predictions, did our experiment and documented our results. We asked, will it Sink or Float? Some of our prediction were spot-on. Others were a little tricky!
