Ecole Heritage’s science lab was the scene of lots of experimentation during May 16-17.
TELUS World of Science – Edmonton was on hand to give students the opportunity to learn about science in a fun manner. Each class received an hour of instruction and the opportunity to perform experiments.
“All our programs are curriculum-based, offering hands-on science, to get kids excited about science,” says Whitney Horban, the coordinator for community outreach at the organization.
The experiments are tailored to each grade. For example, Chantal Roy’s Grade 4 class participated in the “Thrill Rides” experiment.
Using foam tubes attached together, they had to run a ball down the tubes successfully three times. They had to use a loop, a hill and a curve to successfully complete the experiment. Principal Nicole Walisser commends Science World for offering this resource to the school.
“What a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience hands-on science activities with Telus World of Science,” says Walisser.
