Spring SAVY 2013 Week 5: Brain Blast – Section 3 (Instructor: Jacquelynn Brown)

Wow, I can hardly believe we only have one more week of Spring SAVY. I have really enjoyed the class and hopefully your child can say the same. Yesterday we reviewed the scientific method and then the students broke into 3 groups where they utilized the scientific method to design and perform a modification of one of the many experiments we have done the past 4 weeks. Next week we will finish discussing and analyzing the data they collected so we can prepare our scientific posters. (In preparation encourage your child to think about the areas of the brain their experiment utilized and whether their results supported their hypothesis.) The students will be presenting their posters at the scientific meeting that will take place during the Open House. Again I really hope to see you all there (11:15 to 11:45). I know  the kids are also excited to get to show off their hard work. Also, as in many real scientific meetings, there will also be a person judging posters and we will award certificates- so you don’t want to miss it. Have a wonderful week and we look forward to seeing you all next week during Open House.
