Mrs. Rosztoczy's Third Grade Class
While studying the lunar landing in our Solar System unit, we built rockets and rocket launchers (using straws, balloons, and paper) to consistently hit a target. We used our STEM skills to plan, test, and improve our rocket designs for better, more accurate flight. We were excited to hear that on the same we did our project NASA sent a real rocket up to the International Space Station to deliver supplies to the astronauts working and doing experiments there.

Naiotnal Consititution Center - Citizenship Challenge: 2018 Mrs. Raitt's 5th Grade Class
2nd grade “adopted” 2 families through Bucks county children and youth. Our students earned money by doing chores at home. They then used that money to buy items on the families’ “wish lists”. This experience tied into good citizenship ( under CB’s social studies Communities Unit). It helped students learn the value of giving to our community.
First Grade Stem Challenge
After learning about how snowflakes are formed, 1st graders in Mrs. Fillette's class (with help from 4th grade buddies in Ms. Vollman's), try to build them (symmetrical, six-sided and able to freely hang) with only a small set of materials. Very "cool", first grade!
Science Alive, was organized and run by Buckingham parents, allowing primary students to get a hands-on experience with natural phenomena and think critically about how things function in the world around them. Buckingham future physicists, chemists, biologists, and much more can say they began their training here...
