Science Club Summer Camp is recruiting CPS teachers! This new, practical approach to teacher professional development helps third-grade teachers incorporate scientific thinking and creative investigations across the curriculum.
This quarter Science Club kids dive head first into understanding water quality and access, particularly examining the water crisis in Haiti. Students are working with their scientist mentors to analyze contaminated water samples and design water filtration devices that can restore water health. Science Club is also working on several fundraising projects.
Last week 20 Science Club kids boarded a bus to Northwestern University for a physics adventure. Donning lab goggles and gloves, the kids uncovered the unusual properties of different materials at extremely low temperatures.
