BSCO Science Enrichment Wraps Up Year

Each year, BSCO provides funds for hands-on science enrichment, allotting a certain amount to each grade level in the hopes of offering a greater and more exciting science curriculum in the classroom.  

This year, four grade levels each experienced two in-class, hands-on science demonstrations from outside vendors, including the Zoo, the Audubon Society, OMSI, and Mad Science.  Third grade opted to use a portion of their funds to bulk up their classroom libraries with weather resources, while fifth grade will dive into water filter supply kits this June, giving the students a firsthand opportunity to witness science at work.

Here are listing of the presentations given this school year.
