Twenty-five of Marvin Camras' 8th graders visited Schurz High School for an Engineering Workshop and to tour Schurz' Career Technical Education programs on November 25. They worked on hands on activities such as soldering/desoldering circuits, engineering a Water Tower with pipe cleaners, re-assembling a giant 3D Cube, and trying their hand with 3D Autodesk Inventor software, Our students wish to thank Schurz High School for the opportunity to explore engineering activities.
Spooky STEM...Our students got caught in its web!
Camras students explored different Science, Technology, Engineering and Math activities during Spooky STEM Family Night! Some of the activities were Green Screen Technology, Pumpkin Pie Math Measurement, Lava Lamp Densities, Creature Feature Squishy Circuits, Haunted House Engineering, Glow Water and Zombie Slime! As a special trick or treat, they learned the scary steps to Michael Jackson's Thriller! They all had a howling good time!
Thank you to Belvedere Trading LLC, for donating school supplies and visiting Camras!

Science excitement is in the classrooms!
3rd grade is investigating water through hands on experiments. They learned some pretty cool things such as Water has no shape, Water is a liquid, solid, and gas, Water evaporates, Water has surface tension, etc... They then shared their explorations by displaying what they learned. 3rd grade has some awesome scientists!
Congratulations to Ms. Smith from Room 204!
Ms. Smith received funding at DonorsChoose.org for her classroom project called, "Rockin' Math with Rekenreks"!
DonorsChoose.org is a free nonprofit website where teachers can receive funding for student resources. If you stop by during math, you can see Ms. Smith's students deeply engaged in their math learning with their rekenreks!
