Elementary In-School Program
This will be our 5th week! The Ramp and Roll class has been discussing force, gravity and friction. They’ve been designing vehicles to add friction and overcome friction. The Super Sleuths finished gathering information on their powder set which will be used on our next case: The Cupcake Heist.  The Sky Quest group had activities about planet order, rotation and revolution. Next they’ll start to learn what makes each planet unique.
