Hay Springs Elementary collaborated with Chadron State College to host the first annual Family Science Night on November 20th. This fun-filled evening featured a structured environment for families to explore, experiment, and talk about science. Hands-on educational, activities were planned and organized by Chadron State pre-service elementary students for families to investigate different science concepts. Elementary students got their hands dirty making an edible soil profile, observed a chemical reaction while making elephant toothpaste, created a model of the different levels of the ocean, and constructed a marshmallow, straw, and toothpick structure that would survive an earthquake.
Thank you to everyone who helped with and participated in Family Science Night as it takes everyone to make these events a success! It was exciting to see such a great turnout! We hope you all had a great night and that we can make Family Science Night an annual event.
