Guided Discovery Update
Battle of the Brains Mentor Visit
Our Burns & McDonnell engineering mentor and former PSMS graduate met with us last month, and will visit with us again after school on Wednesday, October 14th in Room 40 from 2:50 - 4:00.
We have four teams working on Battle of the Brains competition submissions for the Burns and McDonnell and Union Station new "outdoor" exhibit. The "BIG" science concepts the groups have selected include: biomes, environment, gravity, and physics. The due date for the submissions is 5:00 on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 (since I will be out of the building on Wednesday, October 21st).
Some students have requested to stay after school to work on their submissions and I have agreed to stay until 4:00 if they want to meet in my room. Love that work ethic!!
