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!
