Kool-Aid makes Science Fun
The students used Kool-aid to enhance some hands- on learning of the scientific method.
Kim Kincaid with SESA visited Mrs. Garlock's 5th grade science classes to lead the lesson and experiments.
SESA stands for Science Enhancement for Science Advancement.
This program is a collaboration between the Allen County Educational Service Center/Allen County Schools and corporate partners, Ashland, Fort Amanda Specialties, Husky, INEOS and Potash Corp.
SESA brings hands-on, grade appropriate, science lesson plans to the classroom.
Thanks to Ms. Kincaid for bringing this program to our Elida Middle School.
We'll have another SESA program, "Survivor Tech Challenge" in April.
