Palmer's Science Second
Weather, Atmosphere.....and an Observatory!
Week in Review
We explored salt water density in the lab this week to better understand the role density plays in our ocean currents. Students also created their 1-pager reviews (an example in the background picture) as a way to wrap-up the unit and prepare for their test. Thursday night several students attended the Austin College Star Gazing Party at the IDEA Observatory and were able to view Orion's Nebula, moon craters, several amazing star clusters. Such a great experience!

How much salt will it take to make the egg float?
Robotics club is up and running!
The start of the second semester means that Robotics is back! Students use the Lego Mindstorm program to build and program their creations.
Amazing view of moon!
I took this picture at Austin College last night using a telescope that was set up for the star-gazing party.
