Students discover science
There’s only one day a year at the R. Roger Rowe campus when lizards, toads and sugar gliders come to visit and first graders become “gumdrop engineers.” The entire day on April 3 was Science Discovery Day.
Students went on rotations, led by eighth graders. They got a first-hand lesson in aerodynamics before learning about whale songs and dolphin talk. They studied electricity, gravity and rockets, and met a variety of visiting animals. Second graders dissected owl pellets and third graders dissected a pig’s heart.
Dr. Robert Gillespie, a parent and cardiac surgeon, led the Follow Your Heart rotation, where students not only picked apart the pig’s heart, but looked at the results of a real angioplasty and learned about keeping the heart healthy.
