K-6 students to be treated to ‘Science Discovery’ event PDF Print E-mail

The Edgerton Explorit Center (Nebraska’s hands-on science center) of Aurora, NE will present “Science Discovery,” a one-day hands-on science program for K-6 grade students Monday, March 8, at the Chase County Schools Longhorn gym.
The excitement begins with a high energy science show at 8:30 a.m. for all students in grades K-6. The demonstrations are sure to wow the audience while learning the how and why it all happened, said Marla Smith, who is coordinating their program here.
At 9 a.m., students will begin class rotations through the “zone,” a gymnasium full of hands-on science activities, displays and experiments. Students will be engaged in a wide variety of activities in which to investigate, explore, experiment and discover.
Ken Schroeder, executive director of the Edgerton Center, along with John Thompson will be the instructors for the day. Both men were at S.C.O.R.E. camp here last summer.
The Edgerton team will travel to Grant on Tuesday, March 9, for another Science Discovery Day.
Imperial Grade School Foundation is also sponsoring a “Family Night,” which follows the day’s activities. Students are encouraged to come back to the “zone” and bring their parents, grandparents or others in the community who might be interested. The science show will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Following the show, the audience is free to inquire, discover and experience the “zone.”
The Imperial Grade School Foundation is also the sponsor of S.C.O.R.E. (Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences), which will return in June of 2011.
