  • In Science Circus, Students Learn What’s the Matter – and How it Changes Form

    With balloons, a soda can and something called a Van de Graaff Generator, an educator from the Liberty Science Center taught students in the Columbus and Nelson Mandela/Dr. Hosea Zollicoffer schools about the states of matter, and how they behave. Along the way, they found answers to questions such as this puzzler from the educator, STEM Program Developer Dayna Mancuso: If the air around us exerts pressure – 15 pounds for every square inch of us – “Why are we not being squished right now?” She presented the questions, land answers, in online “Science Circus” class recently as part of the District’s six-week summer program.

  • Students Dive into Six-Week Summer Program

    Right from the start, the students in this year’s expanded summer program dove into engaging activities. They learned about bears and ladybugs in one class, made trail mix in another and created a “Summer Bucket List” in still another. Students in the program are attending classes four days per week for six weeks rather than the traditional four. The aim is to recover from the difficulties in both academics and social-emotional development brought by the pandemic-era remote and hybrid learning.
