Science Explorers
Ages 6-9
Debbie Walker
Fall - Forces and Simple Machines
This exciting, hands-on course by Quest in Science will give students the knowledge of how objects move and work. They will learn about inertia and forces. They will experiment with toy cars to understand energy input/output relationships. Students will compare how objects are affected by gravity. They will work with inclined planes, levers, pulleys, gears and observe how these simple machines can work together. At the end of the course, students will create their own invention to present to the class.
Winter:  Magnificent Matter!
This quarter, Quest in Science presents Magnificent Matter!
 
Spring:  Our Green Earth
This quarter, our Science Explores will not only learn the biology of plants but also gain a greater appreciation of Our Green Earth. In this stimulating hands-on science course from Quest in Science, students will study how plants grow, what they need to survive and what each part of a plant does. We will observe seed germination, compare various varieties of seeds, and dissect both a seed and a flower. Each student will make their own “Green Guy” to take home and learn what plants need to grow. We will end this wonderful unit with a plant party for both students and families!
