Last week in the JES Science Club we had fun building Geodesic Domes using toothpicks and gummy candy or mini marshmallows. A geodesic dome is a sphere-like structure made up of interconnecting triangles. We ended up with strong structures that use little building materials. Using the existing materials any other way to build structures resulted in weak and messy buildings. (We had to try!) #jeffersoncusd1

Last week in JES Science Club: We played with magnets of various strengths as they moved iron filings inside transparent tubing. As expected, the fridge magnets were pretty and not very good at this job, but the neodymium magnets & ceramic magnets were quite good! #jeffersoncusd#

We learned so much last week in Science Club at JES! First, we learned about refraction, the bending of light as it travels from one medium into another. After seeing that arrows flip horizontally when placed behind a glass of water, we noticed our faces also change... and hilarity ensued. The second half of class, we looked at the results of our germs experiment. After the germs spent one week in an incubator, we were able to see the bacteria or fungi colonies using a magnifying glass. We promise to wash our hands more often!
