The 2-5 campus was in for quite a surprise at the end of January when the Cobb County Schools Education Foundation and Blooper, the Atlanta Braves mascot, stopped by to award a grant for $2,398 towards the purchase of Ozobots for the STEM room. There was quite a bit of screaming...I mean cheering involved!
Thank you to all the teachers, parents, and community members who participated in the King Springs Stem Night on January 24th. A great time was had by all!
We had a super successful science fair this year! We are so proud of the number of students who chose to enter a project for judging. The top two projects from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will move on to compete in the district level science fair in February. Class projects from grades 2-4 are in the slideshow below and you can find individual student project pictures under the tab for each grade level. K-1 class projects will be on display in the K-1 learning commons on Thursday, January 24th during STEM night. Hope to see you there!
Once again, the students did a great job of completing the newest family challenge of using a paper plate to represent their family or their culture. A new STEM family challenge will be announced shortly after we return from the holiday break!
This will be the final help session.
Next week (Dec. 3-7) is Hour of Code week. During that week the students at the 2-5 campus will be programming a dance party on www.code.org. To help get the 2-5 students' brains in "code mode" we did some unplugged coding activities in all grade levels. First the students were able to try to follow code, and then they got to write code for someone else to follow.
Wondering what to get your child for Christmas? How about something STEM focused?!?!
