Rancho Santa Fe School to hold annual Science Discovery Day

RSF-ED-logoThe Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation “is proud to support” the Annual Science Discovery Day at the R. Roger Rowe School on Friday, April 4. This is a unique day of science that covers many areas of science, from anatomy and physics to robotics and genomics. Workshops will include Ms. Frizzle’s Bee Olympics, Awesome Aerodynamics, Can U ID It?, and Gel Electrophoresis with Innocence Project. The goal is to expose students to the many aspects of science and allow them to discover their own passion. Some additional highlights of this year’s program will include:

•2nd Graders: “Birds, Birds, Birds” - Led by a volunteer from the Audubon Society, students will learn all about birds and their features, focusing on owls. They will then explore regurgitated owl pellets to discover all the amazing things owls eat.

•4th Graders: “3D 4U” — Students will explore the ins and outs of 3D printers with the guidance of experts from the field of this innovative technology.

•6th Graders: “Sound Wave Sound Off” — Students will learn all about sound waves and will work in small groups to build a speaker to broadcast sound from an am/fm radio.

Students get to experience science through interesting presentations and exciting hands-on experiences related to real world science, generously funded by the RSF Education Foundation. In each grade, the students will break into groups and attend several amazing science-related workshops throughout the day.

Volunteer opportunities are available. Community friends interested in volunteering may contact the Science Discovery Day Chairs: Lisa Russeth, & Alex Coe:
