Our enrichment theme for the week was "Full Steam Ahead."

Students studied the ecosystem and made take-home terrariums. They learned about rocks and minerals. Then students went on a rock scavenger hunt and experimented with growing crystals. JC Summer School students learned about states of matter and even made slime. Students used toy cars to explore kinetic and potential energy. Through the balloon rocket activity, students learned about the physics of motion and launch.

JC Summer School students also enjoyed a delicious breakfast, lunch, and snack. The afternoon snacks complemented the daily STEAM activities. Stay tuned to hear all about next week's #JCSummerSchool adventures.
