Central Elementary students continue to strengthen their reading and math skills in the third week of their no-cost summer learning camps.
Thank you to STEM coordinator Mrs. Shannon White for sharing pictures of the completed projects from the Water Slide Challenge which are on display in the lunchroom, as well. The students were challenged with creating water slides to measure speed and velocity of a marble as it slid down the slide; they also monitored when speed increased or decreased.
Pictured are Alizabeth Cowart and Ariella Ferdin with their water slide and Deviun Stallworth and Connor Merced with their water slide.
Thank you, also, to Central High School volunteers Adrianna Walker and Ruby Burks for assisting with the challenge.
Thank you, also, to Ms. Zacher who shared a picture of Central Elementary Reading Coach Mrs. Porch, who visited classrooms and completed activities, as well as read aloud with the kids daily. Mrs. Porch also led the first grade students in completing an M&M bar graph to teach students to collect, read, interpret, and compare data.
Lastly, thank you to Ms. Bee for sharing a picture of the STEM kids who completed the Solar Oven Challenge. Students engineered their ovens using common materials and harnessing the power of the sun.
They had to keep in mind that heat rises, so they had to engineer their cooking surface appropriately, and they had to think about the type of materials that would be best at conducting or transferring heat. After building their ovens, students tested their solar oven by cooking s’mores.
Pictured are Jace Martin, Bradley Tinney and Alizabth Cowart and Alana Robinson and Jazmyn Whetstone showing off their ovens and treats. The solar ovens will come in handy on the students’ next camping trip.
