Joke of the day

One of the ways we will build community this year is through our Joke of the Day! Students will have the opportunity to submit a joke of the day. Jokes will be read by a member of the student services team during morning announcements. While the student’s name will not be mentioned, their grade will be mentioned. (Example: Today's joke comes from a 3rd grader!) Please click here to have your child submit the joke or to submit the joke on behalf of your child.

Down To Earth Experimental Physics (DEEP)

A Hands-On Physical Science Program for 5-6 Graders

Learn through fun hands-on experiments and instructive demos, about physical phenomena such as mechanical waves, light reflection, refraction, and dispersion (i.e., separation into color components), and their application to developing physical instruments to study large astronomical objects (e.g., stars) as well as small, microscopic particles (e.g., biological cells, molecules, and atoms). In addition, the students learn how to build and use various devices: a toy guitar, convex and concave lenses cut out of Jell-O, a telescope, a microscope, a spectrograph for analyzing light color, and an electrical circuit including an LED light source to study absorption of light by various substances. At the end of each session, the students take home the device they built to play with and to show to their family and friends. The program culminates with a visit to the Planetarium and the Physics Department’s research laboratories at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, one of America's top research universities.
