Super Saturday, the first ever at Hartsburg-Emden, saw 40 children and 10 adults busy with learning exciting science and math. Math is an area the district needs to improve – so the kids voluntarily spent 3.5 hours on a Saturday morning working with addition, measurement, subtraction, multiplication and weight. Pumpkin math used up over 45 pumpkins - not to mention the 4 pounds of candy corn used in graphing. Then it was on to an awesome science presentation by Dangerous Dan! The kids went home at noon with new t-shirts, math mysteries, math games, a bucket of slime and lots of fun science ideas swirling around in their heads. Oh, and their hair was standing on end. That’s what a Super Saturday can do – fun learning at the speed of light! We are in the planning stages for the next Super Saturday – Robotics!
Thanks to -
Dr. Manos, Ms. Brooks, Mrs. Willmert, Mr. Guthrie, Mr. Wisniewski and Mrs. Doering- and all the parents who stayed to learn.
The kids said –
I liked the floating hovercraft and the spider.
I love seeing hair standing on end. The pumpkins were gross but I loved it. I learned how to make monster slime. Thank you for this. It was very, very fun. I would love to do this again. Thanks for a great day.
I liked it a lot because I want to be a chemist.
I leaned about flashpaper.
I loved Super Saturday. This is the best yet! My favorite was the frozen carbon dioxide experiments. Super Saturday was fun and I hope we have it again.
I learned about the rings on the pumpkins.
I like learning more about science.
How in the world did that electricity thing work?
