After a short hike on a HOT SUMMER day, what would be really refreshing and fun? ICE CREAM in a bag at the park of course. But, because it's science experiment day, the students had to make their own ice cream! Making ice cream is easy and fun, and takes only a few minutes. This experiment teaches kids how salt melts the ice and lowers its temperature to freeze the sweet milk solution. Students also learn measurements too.
You will need a few ingredients
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk or half & half
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoon rock salt
1 sandwich size plastic food storage bag
1 gallon size plastic food storage bag
How to make it
Fill the large bag full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag.
Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the sandwich bag, and seal it.
Place the small bag inside the large one, and seal it again carefully.
Shake until mixture is ice cream, which takes about 5 minutes.
Wipe off the top of the small bag (of salt water mixture), then open it carefully.
Justin and Shana just started robotics recently. They chose to do an robotic inchworm. It's an easy project, and their completed project can be enjoyed immediately. Shana likes the camera, while Justin would rather not be on screen
For the end of the school year, the older students did something fun. They built paper roller coasters! The only supplies they were allowed to use included a cardboard base, a pad of paper, scotch tape, scissors, and a marble.
Here, Alvin shows his paper roller coaster, which includes many chutes, runs, a drop, a bowl, and a loop-d-loop. There were many challenges, including structure stability, lack of gravity, and "accidents" from being bumped around. Great job Alvin! Enjoy the show!
Anqi School has a few computer workstations for the students to do homework and gain enrichment. They can look up facts using reference programs, and type their report in a word processing program. When they are done with their homework, students can play a number of different educational games. Some games challenge the student's knowledge, math, vocabulary, history, and even physics.
The police are the GOOD GUYS! Anqi School went for a visit to the Newark Police station. While there, the students saw the Emergency 911 Response Center, the holding cells, the debriefing room, the canine training suit, and the record files. The students even had a chance to sit in a real police cruiser!
