What do you get when you combine curiosity, energy, magnets, gravity, chemistry, physics, slime, gloop, and a bunch of kids who want to see and do cool experiments?!? SNAP, CRACKLE, POP! Science! Let’s round out our school day together learning about the scientific method through lots of science experiments. Might (definitely) be a little messy. Might (definitely) be kinda loud. Might (definitely) see some cool stuff. Will absolutely be fun!
Each week we will go through the Scientific Method. First, we will ask a question. Then, we will gather information and observe (research). Making a hypothesis (guessing the answer) comes next followed by experimenting and testing our hypotheses. Finally, we will draw a conclusion. Of course all of that will probably (definitely) be far less interesting to the class than experiments like making elephant toothpaste, building protective equipment for eggs, changing the color of plants, dancing raisins, magic milk, making slime, volcanoes, lava lamps, catapults, and marshmallow buildings.
Little to no homework will be given in this class. Parents can certainly use the topics we cover as a place to start with their learning at home. No reading and very little optional writing will be expected. All supplies will be provided.
Supply Fee: $100

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom, I will make the following adjustments to this class. *Tutor will submit youtube videos to view and weekly projects, experiments, or work. *Tutor and students will meet during the last 30 minutes of the scheduled class time for students to share their work with me and other students via video conferencing platform. Our plan is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin OR cancel CLASSROOM meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation changes. Our goal is to keep your family safe and engaged during this unprecedented time.
