Last Meeting–Capture the Sun April 20, 2016Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
It’s hard to believe that the year is already coming to an end! This Tuesday will be our final after-school meeting for the year. We will play a Science Club classic, Capture the Sun, and finish our projects from last week. It has been a wonderful year, and we look forward to seeing all of you there. Next up: our annual awards banquet and our final camping trip at French Camp.
Endangered Species April 18, 2016Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
It is hard to believe we are almost to our last Science Club meeting of the year! As we finish off this year, we will end by talking about endangered species. These species can be animals, plants, fungi, even bacteria…though we are often more familiar with endangered animals. We will be creating posters telling the stories of some of these endangered species this week, as well as playing some games.
Toxicology April 6, 2016Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Last week, we talked about chemistry and the interactions between different atoms and compounds. Some chemicals are necessary for the survival of living organisms while others can cause very negative effects. The study of these negative effects is called toxicology. Toxicologists study compounds from natural sources (such as animal venom and poisonous plants) to man-made ones (like medicines and preservatives). Join us this week as we talk about the basics of toxicology!
Chemistry March 30, 2016Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Everyday, all day, chemistry is happening all around us. From our bodies digesting food and turning it into energy for us to gases interacting in the atmosphere, the molecules that make up our existence are constantly moving, interacting, and changing forms. This week we will talk about some of the basics of chemistry including chemical bonding, chemical reactions, and element structure. See you on Tuesday!
