BRILLIANT! That sums up Bonny Slope's 11th Annual Science Night!

On Friday, March 15th, over 700 of our community's brightest scientific minds congregated at Bonny Slope Elementary for a fun filled evening of hands-on science exploration and student projects.

Throughout the hallways, cafeteria, and outside, families interacted with local scientists from 9 separate organizations.  Children molded brains with OHSU, studied the moon through Rose City Astronomer's telescope, designed and crafted Bonneville Power transmission towers, and showed their parents how to use Osmos and Ozobots at the Bonny Slope Elementary Technology tables.  Everyone also got to select crystals and fossils from the Rice Rock Museum and take home a catapult from Saturday Academy. 

Meanwhile, 125 student scientists gathered in the gym, prepared to present their Engineering Designs and Science Experiments, while proudly wearing their 'Bobcat Science Earbud Lanyards'.  Thanks to an army of volunteers, each student had the opportunity to talk to 2 reviewers, where they received positive written and verbal feedback on their projects.  The reviewers were so impressed with the student's public speaking skills and creativity!

A tremendous thank you for your generous donations to BSCO, which provided this free educational event to our community.  And a special thank you to the following:

Pizza Schmizza, Bonneville Power Administration, Bonny Slope Technology Lab, First Lego League, First Tech Challenge, OHSU Think First, Rice Museum Of Rocks And Minerals, Rose City Astronomers, Saturday Academy, Tualatin Valley Water District, Parent Volunteers, Bonny Slope Alumni Volunteers, Bonny Slope Elementary Staff, and the BSCO Science Night Leads (Brenda Mayland and Holly VanderPloeg).

The Bonny Slope Technology Lab Needs Your Extra LEGO blocks!

Our technology teacher, Ms. Sangston, has some cool ideas using Legos and robots and more...but she needs Legos!!  Any color, any size, any assortment of regular sized Legos (no Duplos) are fine. Dig through those old sets and boxes shoved in the back of your closet and see what you can spare.  Drop anything you can donate in the bin in the office.  The sooner the better as she would like to use some as part of a science night exhibit.

  3.  Student Science Experiments and Engineering Designs

This year’s Science Night will take place Friday, March 15 from 6:00 – 8:00pm free of charge!  This event is brought to you by your generous BSCO donations. 

Please note - Students do not need to have a science project in order to attend Science Night.  Everyone is welcome!

But all Bonny Slope Kindergarten – 5th Graders are invited to participate in creating and presenting a science project at Science Night.  Please don’t think your Kindy/1st Grader is too young, their projects are such crowd pleasers! Science projects are done at home and the display boards are brought to school for Science Night.  There are two type of projects your student can choose from:

  1. Science Experiment

  2. Engineering Design

If your student is interested in doing a project, please visit the Science Night BSCO site for How To documents, project ideas, and pictures of past projects.  www.bonnyslopebsco.org/science

Once your student has decided on a project, please submit an online entry form located on the BSCO website at www.bonnyslopebsco.org/science.

If you have any questions about Science Night, please let us know! sciencenight@bonnyslopebsco.org

BRILLIANT! That Sums Up Bonny Slope's 10th Annual Science Night!

On Friday, March 16th over 400 of our community's brightest scientific minds congregated at Bonny Slope Elementary for a fun filled evening of hands-on science exploration and student projects. 

 

Throughout the hallways, cafeteria, and outside families interacted with local scientists from eight separate organizations.  Children patiently waited in line to ride Catlin Gabel's interactive robots over and over again, marveled at the Beaverton School District's Future Bus, and became junior forensic scientists while taking and studying fingerprints.  Everyone also got to create and bring home creatures from the Pet Science & Education table and assemble a LED circuit with the BSD Innovation Strategists.

 

Meanwhile 135 student scientists gathered in the gym, prepared to present their Engineering Designs and Science Experiments, while proudly wearing their 'light bulb lanyards'.  Thanks to an army of volunteers, each student had the opportunity to talk to two reviewers, where they received positive written and verbal feedback on their projects.  The reviewers were so impressed with the student's public speaking skills and the quality of their work!

 

Andrea Watson, from Tualatin Valley Water District also provided the following feedback, "The event was very well organized and the interaction between your young scientists and their parents/guardians was very educational.  Keep up the great work in promoting inquiry and the scientific method! It was very rewarding to ask the students (who did experiments) what they learned."

 

A tremendous thank you for your generous donations to BSCO, which provided this free educational event to our community.  And a special thank you to the following:

 

Beaverton School District Future Bus, Catlin Gabel Robotics Team 1540: The Flaming Chickens, Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute, BSE First Lego League Mini Team, Mountain Wave Search & Rescue, Pet Science & Education, Saturday Academy, Tualatin Valley Water District, Parent Volunteers, Bonny Slope Alumni Volunteers, Bonny Slope Elementary Staff, and the BSCO Science Night Committee (Aparna Srinivasan, Kate Resch, Holly VanderPloeg, and Lianne Yarvis)
