Astronomy February 27, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Get ready to delve deeper into space and study the stars. Our next topic is Astronomy, the study of celestial objects. By studying Astronomy we can learn our location in the universe, similar to how satellites tell us where we are on Earth. This week we will learn the different types of celestial bodies and the formations they make in space.
Planetary Science/Solar System February 18, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Space, the final frontier. While there is still a lot about our Earth that remains a mystery to scientists, even more mysteries await in the seemingly boundless realm of space. We have only just begun to explore our own solar system, not to mention outside of the few planets orbiting around our Sun. This week we will compare the size and distance between the planets in our solar system, learn about lunar cycles, and more! It will be a great day for Science Club and we look forward to seeing you there!

Space. The final frontier…this week we will be talking about the technology we as humans use to explore the universe outside of our world. We will apply what we learned while talking about physics last week to the principles of rocket science as well as aerodynamic design and launching! Get ready to have a blast (rocket pun)!!! Countdown begins in 6…5…4….
Physics February 4, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This week we will spend an entire meeting exploring the science of physics! Physicists (scientists who study physics) work within multiple branches and specialties such as mechanics, acoustics, optics, and electrics. With such a wide variety of areas, we will only be able to scratch the surface of this branch of science. We will be sure to discuss the basic principles and core theories of physics. We hope to see you all on Tuesday!
HERPETOLOGY FIELD TRIP!!! January 28, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This week we will be taking a field trip to Mississippi State University to examine dozens of specimens of different species of herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians). Though they are often studied together, reptiles and amphibians are VERY different types of animals and we will talk about their unique anatomy and requirements for survival. We look forward to seeing you this week and learning about the some of the scaly and slimy (and awesome) creatures of the world!
