Christmas Story Time

To celebrate the Christmas season we visited the first grade at Elgin Public and St. Boniface to read Jingle Bells by Iza Trapani. The book takes us on a Christmas sleigh ride around the world to discover traditions from Mexico, Sweden, the Philippines, Poland, Italy, Kenya, and the United States. To celebrate a tradition from Mexico, the children made poinsettias.

Rockets to the Rescue

Have you every wondered what it would be like to be an aerospace engineer? Professional engineers frequently encounter design challenges when developing, manufacturing and testing aerospace products. They must be creative and use their imaginations to best solve problems. During our final activity time, the kids designed, built and launched a rocket to test for height and distance. The pictures show the kids testing their rocket creations.
