BACK IN MY DAY – THINGS I DIDN’T LEARN IN SCIENCE CLASS
Instructor: Ms. Sarah Conn
Things we didn’t learn (or forgot about) in Science Class
Session 1: Human Evolution – A lot has changed since we were in school. From new discoveries like Homo naledi and the Denisovans to old favorites like Lucy, we’ll learn about current research in human evolution and learn about our ancient human cousins.
Session 2: STEAM Tech Night – We’ll start simple in this session by using microscopes to explore the unseen world around us, play around with some drones, do some fun demonstrations of Newton’s Laws of Motion and more.
Session 3: Sustainability Today – In this session, we’ll learn about ways you can be more sustainable, how alternative fuels are being used today and the features Marist has installed to help make the school a greener place.
*This course requires a smartphone and the ability to download the Tello app for our STEAM night.
