Calling all young scientists! If your child asks a lot of questions, likes to take things apart, enjoys building, or is constantly observing the world around them, then sign them up for K-3 Science Night. K-3 Science Night will be held on Thursday, April 2 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. in the Bryant gym/cafeteria. This year we will have to limit the total number of presentations/demonstrations to 95 due to space constraints, so sign up early to reserve a spot for your child or group. Parents of young scientists should reserve a spot for their child by emailing me your child's name and grade. Professional scientists who would like to inspire young scientists with a description of their work should This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it a short description of who they are and what they would like to present. The deadline for sign ups is Monday, March 30.

For more information on K-3 Science Night or to find find links to great resources for experiments, please visit the K-3 Science Night webpage.

This week's featured experiment will introduce you to the ubiquitous force of friction. Have you ever tried to slide across your wood floor in your socks? What happens if you take those socks off and try to slide again? Friction is what keeps everything in the world from sliding around everywhere when you give it a nudge. In this experiment you will slide coins around on different surfaces to see how those differences create different amounts of friction. For all the details on this experiment and many other cool ones, visit this great Scientific American website.
