Science Club

In 2017-18, OMS Science Club will explore various science topics outside of classroom curriculum. We started with investigating avocado seeds sprouting patterns on 9/18. The second week on 9/25 we weighed and rehydrated "astronaut's food" in our lab. Week 3 on 10/2 our club will design and build "balloon propulsion system" and conduct team races.


In the winter weeks, we started our Superheroes Science exploration. We checked out if it is a myth or a fact (think Mythbuster Jr.) that we might be able to make and control lightning like Thor. We moved on the Spiderman Web investigation. In February, we re-designed Captain America's shield and did different tests to check on the functionality and cost-effectiveness of producing them.


In March, we will focus on 2018 Fluor Engineering Challenge and getting ready for Grade 5 Showcase Night in April.


In May and June, we are investigating "mystery seeds" and trying to figure out what type of vegetables we are growing. Students will bring home the seedlings in June.
