This week the Bronchos have cased the school, taking 40 samples from spots all over the school to see what microbes will grow in the petri dishes our parents so generously bought for us! So far, we found out that the urban myth scientific study that said the sink in a bathroom is dirtier than the toilet seat is NOT true in our school!!! The microbes in that petri dish would take over the incubator if we didn't keep them sealed up! GROSS!!! And COOL!!!!
We are also keeping up our exercise and excited to see what else grows as our petri dishes continue to incubate. And next week, what will we find out about our taste in space???
On two cold January afternoons, Team USA Sharon, MA Heights Elementary School students were treated to some cool rocket blast-offs celebrating the "Launch of MX 2017" It was a very exciting time for all.....
Despite the cold New England weather, all launches were a success and some of our tiny astronauts ended up on the school roof (in orbit!)
This week, the four teams from the Bethany Bronchos each built their Robot Arms, and tried out the Space Roll N Roll! Everyone is challenging body, heart, and mind to the moon and back! Our robot arms were a real challenge, but we have enjoyed picking up everything in the room! Tomorrow we will load up our microbe incubators. Ewww! Let's see what grows! Finally, we want to attach a video especially for our ISS ambassador, Thomas Pesquet. This week, the ISS flew over Oklahoma a few nights, so the kids had their parents film them outside saying hello to Astronaut Thomas as he flew overhead. Hope you enjoy your special greeting!
