Science Lab 2020 - 2021

Welcome to the Science Lab program!

Each week your 1st through 5th grade student will attend a 50 minute online science lab session. It is mostly a synchronous (live) teaching time. You can support your student by ensuring they have the following items:

             SCIENCE BAG - from the Materials Distribution day

             TOOLS - pencil, paper, glue stick, tape, scissors, ruler

             SPACE - to do the hands on project, with their device nearby

If you need assistance getting the suggested learning materials or device, please contact us. 

Thank you!

Jedidiah Isler

Each trimester I teach the students about a famous scientist. 

For our second trimester Jedidah Isler is our featured scientist.  She is an astrophysicist who studies blazers (supermassive hyperactive blackholes). Her energy for scientific study is contagious! This TED talk will give you a sense of her:
