Group-2 : 12PM – 2PM Space Mission – Rendezvous with a Comet
Participants will be placed into 9 possible positions (COMMUNICATIONS, MEDICAL, ISOLATION, LIFE SUPPORT, DATA, NAVIGATOR, PROBE, REMOTE, and PRESS PASS) and will be working as astronauts in the Space Station and communicating with their teammates in Mission Control. The missions require the cooperative effort of the nine teams. Teams will do a crew change so that each team will experience Mission Control and the Spacecraft. This authentic setting will provide the students with a multi-sensory environment where they will apply math and science skills.
Digital STARLAB – with this new Starlab program, 4th & 5th graders will be studying an overview of the solar system as well as comets/meteoroids/asteroids.
ROBOTICS – Cubelets and MOSS robotics kits use magnetized pieces in order to construct their robots. Students will complete a series of design challenges with these robotic kits.
Come check out the amazing summer programs available for our gifted kids. There may be representatives from many local organizations like MCC, Harper College, Bricks 4 Kidz, Challenger Learning Center, Camp Invention, Mathnasium and many others. The event will be at Hannah Beardsley Middle School from 6:30pm to 8:00 pm.
