The members of the Science Club invited the 4th graders from Kate Smith Elementary and the 8th graders from Roulhac Middle School to participate in scientific experiments and investigations. During the chemistry laboratory the 4th graders preformed and experiment called Operation Slime, while the 8th graders Observed Chemical Changes, both of these experiments were to increase understanding of how to identify that a chemical change has taken place. Concerning the Biology laboratory the 8th grade students used microscopes and IPads to identify various organisms found in pond water. The 4th graders performed fingerprint analyses on themselves and were able to compare and contrast their fingerprints with each other. The students also used the IPads to explore earth and space applications, as well as, test for color-blindness. The Science Club members worked weeks in advance to prepare the lessons that were taught. Mrs. Henderson and Mrs. Kelly were facilitators while the Science Club members performed and/or guided the students through the experiments.
