Solar Power

Third grade learned about the power of solar energy and its use as an alternative energy source during their Thermal Energy and Conservation Units.  It was exciting to watch Steve Spangler’s  50 foot solar bag take flight using only energy from the sun.

STEM Activity

Fourth grade learned about big data today from EMC engineers. “EMC is a leading provider of IT storage hardware solutions to promote data backup and recovery and accelerate the journey to cloud computing.”  A big thank you to Kevin Zawodzinski (a KR dad) for organizing this event for us!

Such Wisdom!

I explained that we have two different kinds of ducks when one of my kindergarten students asked me why they are different colors.  Her response…”They don’t care that they are different colors, they love each other anyway.”  We could all learn that lesson!
