Happenings at Ignite
3rd Grade Nebulas
The Nebula Jar experiment was a symbolic experiment to get the students to realize what happens in space. There were no literal chemical reactions. However, students used symbols to relate to real life science occurrences. The students used mason jars full of water to symbolize the galaxy full of oxygen. Droplets of paint were added to form gas clouds. Glitter was added to symbolize star formation. When cotton balls applied to the combination of paint, glitter and water. A supernova occurs. Students shook the containers to see if the stars would explode in their galaxies.
7th grade recently did a project called fluid art. They took acrylic paint and created some amazing marbled art.
Polar Express Day!!!!
We celebrated our last school day before break with our 2nd annual Polar Express Day. The students wore their PJs and drank hot chocolate while watching the Polar Express. They had so much fun. What a way to end 2017.
Robotics-After school Program for Grades 4-7
Our Robotics team is working together to create a Lego Robot and program it to do different tasks. Recently we have expanded our team a little bit and they are all learning how to make the robot turn. Here they are working on Progressive Turns, meaning only one wheel turns. They have worked together to work out the math for a 360 degree turn and a half turn of 180 degrees.
It's not too late, if you want your student to be apart of the team there are still 3 spots left for those that want to join.
