Fun with Science

We send our twins, Ricky and Greta, to an Arts and Science Magnet School.  It’s amazing to see how fun they make science and the arts for the children while they are learning!

This past Friday, the school held it’s annual Science Fair.  They brought in birds of prey for the children to observe…

And we got the chance to do lots of hands-on experiments like pedal a bike to that makes light bulbs work.  Greta found out that the new energy-saving light bulbs work with very little effort on the bike versus the old standard light bulbs which use more energy…

Greta even got to make perfume using man-made products and also using natural items found in nature like flowers!  I’m not sure I would wear the perfume she made, but she’s proud of it!

Ricky was off with his dad so I didn’t get many photos of him.  They got to go into a star lab and see the planets and stars!  It was a family fun night and we all learned something!

Wow, hat's off to the school for hosting what was clearly a labor intensive event! We place great emphasis on imagination and experimentation here in this house too.
