Yesterday, my students and their families had the opportunity to meet me at a local science center called OH Wow. The science center is about 45 minutes from our school. Thanks to DonorsChoose.org, 1 child and 1 adult admission were covered per family.
These lovely ladies had a great time in the hurricane machine. They had the winds turned up and giggled away as their hair blew all over the place. So fun to hear their squeals of excitement while they were learning too!
The water was a big draw. This guy was S-O-A-K-E-D, but it didn't bother him one bit.
This guy was happy to build towers for quite a while.
Making music through dance. You could change the sound and dance around in the giant guitar.
They loved the green screen to predict the weather, though, I think they liked dancing and being silly in front of it than actually predicting the weather.
Overall, students and families seemed to have a good time. I think they all learned something new, and I look forward to their excitement Monday as they talk about the trip!
