Congressional Awards Students visit Washington D.C.

 

Syracuse Academy of Science high school’s congressional awards students visited Washington D.C. where they toured many historic landmarks, sites and museums.Friday, March 4th, 2022Syracuse Academy of Science Congressional Awards students embarked on a trip of a lifetime when given the opportunity to visit the Nation’s Capital. Led by Mr. Yaman and Mr. Serkan, the Atoms soaked in all of Washington D.C.’s rich history, iconic monuments, historical sites, landmarks and museums.

During their trip, the Atoms visited the U.S. Capitol, the National Mall (the most-visited National Park), the Space Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and of course the historical Lincoln Memorial.

This historical and patriotic trip to Washington D.C. is always one our students will remember.

Middle School Atoms get a little Seussical

Syracuse Academy of Science middle school students participated in the STEM Egg-Drop challenge after listening to the story, “Horton Hears A Who” on Dr. Seuss and National Read Across America Day.

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022Oh, the Places You'll Go with the Syracuse Academy of Science middle school Atoms ... especially on National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss' birthday!

To celebrate, the Atoms listened to classic Dr. Seuss tales and drew inspiration from the stories as they participated in STEM-related Seussical activities.

Upon reading the timeless tale, "Horton Hears a Who," the 5th-grade students drew inspiration from Horton as they participated in the STEM Egg-Drop challenge. Like Horton, the students were to design a device that would protect their egg when dropped at multiple heights.

As we know in the Cat in the Hat, the Cat was fond of stacking many items to see how high he could go before they all fell. Inspired, the 6th-grade Atoms rose to challenge to stack cups as high as they could go without making them fall. Meanwhile, the 7th-grade students listened to the timeless tale, "Oh the Places You'll Go," and had a meaningful discussion about their journey to come. Students also created parachutes to let their dreams fly high.

In addition to these Seussical STEM-inspired activities, Atoms listened to the story, "The Lorax," which has a central theme of respecting our environment and the creatures within it. Students were tasked with using their imagination, creativity, and problem-solving skills when given the hypothetical role of managers of a 400-acre forest. This activity allowed the Atoms to understand the impact of decisions about forest lands.

Not to be outdone, the Project-Based Learning (PBL) students celebrated National Read Across America & Dr. Seuss' birthday by creating mini-games or activities associated with their respective Dr. Seuss book.

Ready. Set. Read! It’s Read Across America Day

SANY celebrates National Read Across America Day, and encourages all of our students and their families to find time today, this week, or month to read a good book.

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2022In honor of National Read Across America Day, we encourage all of our Atoms and their families to find time today (this week or month) to read a good book. Below are some fun facts about reading that may surprise you.

  • Reading is a great Stress Reliever - Studies show that reading reduces stress by 68%
  • It all adds up - Reading just 20 minutes a day adds up to reading 1,800,000 words per year
  • The fastest way to build vocabulary - Children learn 4,000–12,000 words every year by reading

Dr. Seuss said it the best, "The more that you read, the more things you'll know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

We hope everyone can find time to pick up a book and celebrate National Read Across America Day.
