I had an awesome day exploring Color and Light at one of Mrs. Stephanie's amazing STEAM classes at the Hampton Library. We painted plates and made a kaleidoscope to view them with. Mrs. Stephanie always has such great ideas that I love. Science enthusiasts have to stick together. Thank you, Mrs. Stephanie!
If you haven't already, sign up for the library's summer reading program! I've almost reached my goal! :-)
Today, I went to the Rainbow Children's Home to drop off some goodies and to talk with them about Super Science Kids. Rainbow Children’s Home exists to provide Hope, Security, and Opportunity to girls between 12 and 18 who are victims of abuse and/or neglect. I met Mrs. Kelsey Wheeler who is the Community Outreach Coordinator for the shelter. She was so nice. I'm excited that she has agreed to work with me! I'm also very excited to give the girls lots of science fun!
We had a science night. SAFFT let us use their Parents Night Out to teach science to foster kids. Discover Science Center’s Dr. Tonya, Dr. Karla, and Dr. Matt agreed to teach at this event. They were amazing!! We had six stations: Shark teeth, UV bracelets, Float-sink-flink, Sheep brain, Sheep lungs and heart, and Snap circuits. I loved the kids! Some of them were hilarious! One little boy said at the UV bead station, “Its magic…NO...it’s SCIENCE!”
Thank you Discover Science Center!
Please visit them. They have so many great classes! www.discoversciencecenter.com
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 13 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
