We are planning a “Season of Science” this February and March. We will not be having a Science Fair this year but have some Science/STEM opportunities for our students. Save the date for THURSDAY NIGHT FEB. 4TH at 6:30 PM. We will be having a Virtual Family Science Night (ZOOM).This event is called the “YUCK SHOW”. In this show the students will be engaged in 4 group led science experiments. Look for details coming home on Feb 1st. We will be sending home some of the materials you will need for the experiments. Check it out at yuckshow.com
We have added Hour of Code (a user friendly learn to code program) to the Oak Library main page that all students can access. We are also partnering with the Hinsdale Library to offer Minecraft Hour of Code Sessions on Feb. 22nd and Feb 24th during remote learning either 10 am or 2 pm. This will be a 1 hour class for 3rd-5th grade conducted through Zoom with a HPL librarian. A signup genius will be going out in an email separately.
Additionally, a newsletter will be going home that includes free STEM resources for the students to try out. There are some amazing experiments, activities, and videos that the whole family will enjoy.
Lastly, stay tuned for an additional speaker and STEM Challenge in March!
