“We should not teach students the sciences but give them a taste for them,”(Jean Jacques Rosseau)
I can’t believe we just finished our third week of summer camp. Time does fly when you’re having fun! This week we gave our students a taste of the sciences and what a blast it has been. How do the Sciences help your child?
Science helps children develop vital skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, communication and research. These form part of the most important skills students learn in and out of school. They are essential to making good decisions that lead to achievement and success throughout their lives.
Our upper group completed a research project on volcanoes and presented it to the lower group and were later tasked with creating volcanoes from paper mache. Students had a blast exploring their volcanoes, using different scientific experiments. The egg-excitement did not end there, our kids had to figure out the best way to drop an egg from the second floor without breaking it, which made the egg drop competition a major hit! This was a week of scientific inquiry at it’s best and we are certain that we have some budding scientists in our group!
