Collaboration, Creativity, Communication and Critical Thinking

Thursday, April 25, 2019—Seven 9th-grade girls attended a STEM workshop at SRC, Inc., a nonprofit research and development company involved in the defense, environment and intelligence industries. During the workshop, students witnessed an inspiring Syracuse Stage performance about Annie Easley, an African American woman who worked for NASA in the early 1960's. A mathematician, Annie figured out the math needed to send a NASA rocket into orbit, which led to the success of the space program. The girls took a tour of the SRC facilities and learned about the company’s various programs, primarily developing technologies for the military. They experienced hands-on team-building exercises in which they had to create something out of two paper bowls, two paper cups, four toothpicks, and ten gummy bears, and then explain to their partners how to reconstruct it. The girls also learned some basic coding. All the activities required them to use the four C's of STEM, Collaboration, Creativity, Communication and Critical Thinking.

Syracuse City Firefighters Visit Kindergarten

Thursday, April 11, 2019—Kindergartners received an exciting visit from some Syracuse City Firefighters. Fire Chief Davis read the book No Dragons for Tea to the students and spoke with them about the importance of fire safety. Students were able to see firefighting gear up close and learn the stop, drop, and roll fire-safety technique. Students were then able to sit inside the fire truck and see its bells and whistles. They enjoyed asking questions and posing for pictures with the fire hose. Each student received a helmet, stickers, pencils, and literature to take home, and they were encouraged to share all they learned with their friends and family. Thank you, Syracuse City Fire Department, for helping us to live safely!

Balancing Mind and Body

Thursday, April 25, 2019—During a field trip to Syracuse Yoga, students learned the importance of the mind/body connection and experienced the positive effects of some yoga poses and breathing techniques. For example, they learned how to perform a downward-facing dog and an upward-facing dog position, reaping the stretching and strengthening benefits of both. In a group exercise, the whole class of students formed a tree pose. Best of all, they relaxed and danced to some awesome yoga music.
