A child’s natural tendency is to explore and experiment, so one can only imagine the sheer excitement students experienced at Arkansas Elementary School's Weird Science Night. Hallways and classrooms throughout the building bustled with eager learners engaging in hands-on learning opportunities that even their parents enjoyed.
Students made magnetic slime, lava lamps, marshmallow catapults and more. Stations also featured bouncing bubbles, floating rice and a solution to copy comic paper, to name a few. Students gained a deeper understanding of friction, air pressure, polymers and other scientific fun facts.
Events like Arkansas' Weird Science Night support our APS 2020: Shaping the Future strategic plan belief that all students must have equitable access to learning opportunities that support them in reaching their full potential. Perhaps a few scientists were birthed from this amazing experience.
