SAS 2nd Graders Take on SUNY Oswego

Syracuse Academy of Science 2nd Graders Tour SUNY Oswego Campus

Thursday, April 13th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science second-grade students spent the day touring and learning about the SUNY Oswego campus. They saw a residence hall and took a trip to the theater, where they did a color-sorting activity learning about how the cones in your eyes absorb colors. Students also saw the miniature Zamboni named "Mini" and watched it shoot out a t-shirt. They had to estimate the distance it traveled and then measure it (17 meters in case anyone was wondering!) This tour was organized and run by the Education Department at SUNY Oswego, where future teachers could plan their daily activities. 

It was a wonderful experience for our young Atoms. Not many 2nd graders can say they’ve toured a college before!

SAS HS Atoms Visit Two Universities in Buffalo

Syracuse Academy of Science Juniors & Seniors Tour D'Youville and Daemen Universities

Tuesday, March 28th, 2023: Mr. Stowe took Syracuse Academy of Science students to visit D'Youville and Daemen Universities in Buffalo, NY. It was an excellent opportunity for seniors to experience campus life. For the Juniors, it was an eye-opening experience, and some ended up adding an unexpected school to their application list. All got treated to a delicious lunch at D'Youville and saw Daemen's student residence hall. Sadly, Mr. Stowe couldn't get the students to try Tim Hortons. He was informed that most college campuses have Starbucks, which would be more authentic to the experience. See, even Mr. Stowe learned something!

SAS 4th Graders Receive Awards for Terra State Test Scores

Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School Rewards 3rd Graders for State Tests

Tuesday, March 28th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School held a ceremony in honor of our 4th graders that achieved a level 3 or 4 on last year's ELA and Math state tests as part of Terra Science and Education's Junior Scholars Awards. The Junior Scholars Award is just one of several scholarship opportunities provided to SANY students by Terra. 4th-grade scholars received a $25 gift card for achieving a 3 or 4 on either the ELA or Math (up to $50 for a 3 or 4 on both), with another $25 awarded to students that achieved a four on both! These awards challenge students to do their best and prepare for future high-stakes tests. This year's third graders joined the celebration and cheered on the 4th graders for their incredible achievements while gaining extra motivation to do their best on the upcoming state tests.

We are incredibly proud of the effort put forth by all of our 4th graders, and we can't wait to see what the 3rd and 4th grades can do this year!

NOAA & H. Lee White Maritime Museum Members Bring ROV Workshop to SAS HS

Syracuse Academy of Science 8th Graders Learn Build, Design & Test ROVs

Tuesday, April 11th, 2023: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) members have teamed up with The H. Lee White Maritime Museum in Oswego to create The Proposed Lake Ontario National Marine Sanctuary. This proposal would protect the underwater world and preserve the historical shipwrecks and aircraft beneath the surface. This partnership creates opportunities for educating our communities and youth.

NOAA and The Oswego Maritime Museum members visited Syracuse Academy of Science High School together. Students participated in a workshop to learn STEM career opportunities through NOAA, discover the proposed Sanctuary at Lake Ontario, and use the design and engineering process to create their own Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV.) Students spent two hours of the workshop designing and building an ROV, which concluded with testing their ROV for Neutral Buoyancy. 

In May, students will visit the shores of Lake Ontario to test their ROVs in a friendly competition. If mother nature cooperates, we're hoping for a boat ride on the Great Lake to the Lake Ontario Lighthouse.
