Science Day at Highland Made Science Educational, Relevant, and Fun!
Science Day at Highland Elementary School, organized by the school’s PTO, brought a group of dedicated volunteers to present hands-on.illuminating, and instructive science to Highland students. Presenters included current and past parents, volunteers from the Temple University School of Pharmacy, students from the high school’s H2O for Life Club, and others who shared their love and knowledge of science with Highland students. Presentations included learning about and measuring the pH (alkalinity versus acidity) of soil; the senses of taste and smell; Newton’s Second Law of Motion using marshmallow catapults; the biological contamination of water; drug safety, all about the brain, photosynthesis, static electricity, and much more. Students cycled through the presentations and experiments, learned a great deal, and enjoyed and appreciated the exciting presentations by the volunteers.
