Plant Growth Experiment
In a cross-level STEAM activity, students in Lower Elementary looking to determine whether or not corn on the cob was alive planted a corn cob as an experiment to test their hypotheses. When, after a couple of weeks, the corn cob was covered in sprouts, the students wanted to test whether the sprouts were growing from the cob or the kernels. So, the students revised their experimental setup and involved Middle School students in the Technology Club in order to monitor the growth after planting a new corn cob. An eighth grade student set up a Raspberry Pi computer and camera to record an image of the growth every fifteen minutes for twenty days, and those images were combined to create this video:
Primary Planet Pajama Party - Students in Primary classrooms will have the opportunity to explore the solar system within their class pods this year on September 25.
Remote Learning Days - October 12-13 will be remote learning days for grades K5 through High School in order to prepare for the potential need to transition to remote learning during the school year.
