The Great Egg Drop

Over 200 students participated in the first round of the Great Egg Drop Challenge at Darby Creek Elementary on Wednesday May 18th. Students built containers they designed to cushion a raw egg when dropped. In the first round, eggs were dropped from 20 feet. Over 60 students, whose egg did not break, advanced on to the second drop on Friday, May 20th. The Norwich Township Fire Department brought the ladder truck and dropped
the egg containers from approximately 40 feet. Nineteen students had eggs that survived the fall. In building their egg containers students learned about momentum, air resistance, gravity, and pressure to aid in their design. When students have fun while learning they are more likely to retain the information and are better prepared to be Ready for Tomorrow.

Bradley Students Teaching Biology

First-graders at Alton Darby elementary are learning about plants and animals found in a wetland habitat. Bradley high school biology students set up stations and taught our first graders about life cycles of different animals, experiments they conducted, allowed children to make muskrat dens. This opportunity gave the older students the chance to demonstrate their understanding of the curriculum to the younger students.

Local Designer Leads Lessons at Brown Elementary

Brown Elementary students had the opportunity to work with local fashion designer, Kelli Martin, of Project Runway fame. This was made possible through a grant from The Tween Brands. She taught students about her background in fashion, what inspires her work, and how being unique helps her to create one-of-a-kind looks. She worked with art teacher Rachel Murdock and students to make designs for custom Brown Elementary t-shirts. She was able to help them combine everything into three unique designs. Students were involved hands-on from start to finish, choosing shirt and ink colors, and even printing their own shirts. Seeing a project through, from design to production, gives these students a true authentic opportunity to learn about art and design.
