We had a great first week of meeting all of our new science clubbers and we look forward to a great year.
This week we will be using water to investigate the scientific method. The steps of which are as follows:
Step 1: Make an Observation
Step 2: Make a Hypothesis
Step 3: Test your Hypothesis with an Experiment
Step 4: Draw Conclusions about your Results
Step 5: Report your Results and Restate your Hypothesis if Necessary
Welcome to the Science Club! August 18, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
We are ready for another year of adventure, fun, and lots of learning! This year we will begin by understanding that sometimes learning about science is like being a detective. You have to have a problem or question, gather evidence, state discoveries, and use reasoning to put the clues together! Tomorrow at our first meeting, we will be solving several fun but challenging mysteries to get our brains and questioning skills warmed up for a busy year! Get ready Science Clubbers, it’s going to be a great one!

Thanks for a great year Science Clubbers! May 13, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
What great luck we had at French Camp this past weekend- the forecasted rain held off and we had beautiful weather! Mr. Edwin Faughn gave a wonderful presentation on the universe and taught us about the different constellations throughout the year. We had tons of fun swimming, canoeing, camping, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, and attending Pioneer Day on Saturday. Thanks Science Club for another great year!
Orienteering (at the Dairy!) April 17, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Take “three” on the MSU dairy trip! Hopefully the weather will hold out for us! We will of course be milking cows and learning about the dairy industry, but we will also be learning to use compasses the old fashioned way- no batteries needed! We will cover the basics on “finding a bearing” and “taking a bearing”, and we will also incorporate some GPS activities by setting way points and building polygons! FUN TIMES!
