OB Science and Innovation Night

 Old Bonhomme's 1st annual Science and Innovation Night was Friday, April 6th.  The focus was STEAM, and it included over 30 outside agencies, high school and elementary student showcases, food trucks, GooseChase scavenger hunt and the Science fair. Over 200 students & their families attended, and we gave away over 40 prizes from sponsor donations. What an amazing night!

Our event started with a Science Fair. 
From 6pm-6:30, students had the opportunity to share their Science Fair projects in the library.

At the registration table, families received a map, scavenger hunt info, and cool giveaways including stickers, pencils, bags, and buttons. Did I mention we had over 200 kids register? What a crowd!

Between 6:30-7:30pm we had student & agency showcases. 

The most exciting part for me was the student showcases. 
STEM is for Girls is an after school club designed to teach girls about coding. Students were selected from underrepresented groups in STEM. These girls met monthly throughout the year and learned about STEM.
Eagle Innovators weekly during lunch and recess, and once a month before school to learn about technology.  



Students got cool photo souvenirs to take home


If you attended you might have experienced...
Touching a real brain
Playing some Greg Tang Math games
Touching mill worms
Building a paper airplane and making it glide
Estimating how many quarters tall the arch is 
Watching a Challenger Planetarium show
and so much more! Check out more highlights








 





The GooseChase Scavenger Hunt was a huge hit.

Participants downloaded the GooseChase app on their phone, and played the customized digital scavenger hunt by visiting the different stations, and completing a task. We were lucky to have some great sponsors!
There were 21 missions in all. Check out a few of them below

See you next year!

January STEM Challenge 2nd Grade: Coding with Ozobots

The STEM lesson for 2nd grade incorporated using Ozobot Robots to teach States of Matter & Mapping Skills.

I first learned about Ozobots this past summer. I caught the Amazon Prime sale and purchased two for my kids as toys. Little did I know the impact it could have in the classroom!

2nd grade students had just completed their unit on States of Matter, and I was looking for a way to incorporate my new ozobots I won for my school, and I came across this great blog post by Kim Mattina in which she used Ozobots with middle schoolers to program the States of Matter. I modified the lesson to address curriculum objectives for 2nd grade, and then along the way,  I found a way to connect it to their mapping unit too. 

January K-1 STEM Mitten Challenge

The Mitten Challenge: Objective: Students will engage with STEM activities related to the book, “The Mitten”

Mrs. Clausen's class has been doing a book study on the Mitten, so this month's STEM challenge connected their measurement unit to the reading they were doing.




We talked about the book "The Mitten", then used different objects to measure things around the room.

We used cubes, paper clips, bears, and even our bodies.

We made a hypothesis on how many of the objects it would take to fill the mitten. Then recorded the actual number.


We had fun figuring out how many mittens tall we were
