Bubbles aren’t just for babies- the scientists at camp tested and discovered some strategies for creating truly amazing, phenomenal, incredible BUBBLES!

Agensys Scientists visit PS Science Camp!

Scientists from a local pharmaceutical research lab, Agensys, Inc., visited the camp on multiple days to share their fields of expertise with the campers.  We had an eye surgeon lead us in a cow eye dissection, chemists show us how to turn a penny silver and gold, and biochemists help us extract the DNA from a strawberry.  What a great way to learn!  Thank you Agensys!

Science With a Twist!- A Science & Dance Collaboration

A unique collaboration between PS Arts and PS Science brought a 12 week pilot STEAM curriculum to Martin Luther King Elementary third grade classes in Compton this spring.  Students approached learning a key set of vocabulary words and science themes using hands-on science investigations and dance movements.  In a culminating lesson, student groups worked together to choreograph routines demonstrating their understanding of the science topics.
