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.
Zoo: Animal Homes
Audubon Society: Beautiful Birds
OMSI: The Sound of Science & Bug Me
Mad Science: Sound Basics
Mad Science: Ice Capades & Ecosystems
OMSI: Pit Crews
Weather Book Order
OMSI: Caloric Chemistry
EIE Water Filter Supply Kits
