Last week in the JES Science Club we created beautiful, marbled paper cards. We learned that shaving cream is both water loving (hydrophilic) and water repelling (hydrophobic), and food coloring (water loving molecules) on top of shaving cream creates a marbling effect. The food coloring will only soak into the shaving cream when we add water. #jeffersoncusd1

Some JES classes hosted Chris Horsley to speak with them on Spina Bifida. She was born with this disability 49 years ago. 6th grade students have been reading a book titled Out of My Mind, which is about a girl with Cerebral Palsy. 6th grade also completed some research on different disabilities mentioned in our book and presented power point presentations on these disabilities. Chris said, "one way I overcame frustrations in life was by trying things people said I couldn't do. You will never know what you can do if you don't try." #jeffersoncusd1
