Science Magic Workshops and Assembly
for Everett Christian School Science Fair
Everett Christian School is a K-8 private school. Upper grade students choose a question they want to answer using the scientific method. One had the headline, “Which gender is more organized, boys or girls?” Yes, that one had a predictable conclusion supported by a measurable chart of boys vs. girls as they “organized” a messy desk space. “But no volcanoes”, a teacher told me. “We want them to ask a question, make a hypothesis, and conduct experiments that can be numerically measured and a conclusion drawn.” I love volcanoes as much as the next 5th grader, but I understand his point!
I set up several of my Science Magic Workshop tables so students got to try a number of center of mass, air pressure, topological puzzles, optical illusions, and more.
