Tinker with waves.
Translation:) We had a GREAT day! After the general meeting to get started, the Scholars broke into two groups to learn how to make movies on their iPads and to study the effects of obstacles on streams of water. They got to put their hands into a "surf stream" and create their own waves, figuring out the differences between the waves in water and the waves we've been studying. After a quick snack, they switched and started the process all over again!
From the movie studio and the surfing, they moved to making waves in the pool with Mr. Cowman. A lot of splashing and learning later, they came up to play some four-square with the St. Matthew's student volunteers and eat lunch.
Then they began to study sound waves and make music with Ms. Sauerhoff, and learn about radiation and ultra-violet waves with Mr. Harlan. And just like yesterday, Mr. U brought out some squishy, windy, sweet fun during "Tinker Time" that had all of the LSP staff, volunteers and Scholars laughing, learning and working together to investigate how things work and what we could build.
It was a great way to end the day!
