Jericho Stem stresses the importance of social distancing and wearing masks in creative ways!!! We are working on painting our own emojis and will put masks on them. We will also include messages that remind us to wear masks, social distance, and wash hands often. This is a subject we address often, and we are very proud of how the children remind each other to wear their masks properly, and to separate if they are too close.
Jericho STEM Academy recognizes our Veterans! Happy Veterans Day! Commander Bill Walden was very grateful for our kind and thoughtful Thank You cards. He will distribute them to veterans! Thank you Miss Gina for this wonderful opportunity for our children to show kindness to our veterans!
Making sailboats in Pre-K We have been working on our sail designs this week. We discovered that bigger sails can catch more wind, and make sailboats go faster.
JERICHO STEM Jr. & Sr Toddlers had some fun with candy cane science. While I was setting up our experiment I asked what they thought would happen when we put the candy cane in the liquid. My favorite answer as well as it also being correct was that the candy would fall to the bottom, It did. We poured vinegar, water and seltzer into 3 different jars, we then added pieces of the candy cane to each jar and observed what happened. The jar with the seltzer had an immediate reaction; it bubbled and the water turned pinkish/ red.
