Students were busy collecting data and experimenting in Mrs. Carmela Catizone’s Classroom at Durban Avenue School in Hopatcong on February 23, 2017.
Pistured above: Nicole Kelly and Francesca Campbell, students at Durban Avenue School, showcase their results at a classroom science fair.
Family and administrators were invited to the event paid for by a grant through the Hopatcong Education Association. Students were able to showcase their experiments and show off their results for a live audience and then celebrate with light snacks and refreshments.
The month long project took students through a wild science experience that included: learning about the scientific method, deciding on actual experiments using Chromebooks, organizing and planning, conducting the experiment and recording results. Students worked on experiments such as: explosive volcanos and geysers, oxidation and rust, evaporation, plant life, bath salts, weather and mood, lava lamps, clouds, the water cycle, chemical reactions, and magnetism.
Parents and other members of the Hopatcong Community were able to enjoy Google slide show presentations that were created using Chromebooks. The presentations were followed by a stroll past the various stations as experiments were exploding and foaming. All-in-all the day was a huge “STEAM” ing success. A big thanks goes out to The Hopatcong Education Association who paid for all science materials, display boards and refreshments.
