Robinson and Jordan/Jackson students have been enjoying in school assemblies courtesy of MESA!
 
MEAC (Mansfield Educational Arts Council) enrichment programs are sponsored annually by MESA. MESA spends over $15,000 every year to bring exciting STEAM assemblies to all of the students.  This past week our Kindergarten, 4th Grade and 5th Grade students had fun and learned a lot at these events!  We want to take a moment to thank the Discovery Museum, Museum of Science, Wingmasters and Plimouth Plantation for traveling to our schools to enhance our curriculum and reinforce our learning!  Thank you to the staff at Robinson and Jordan/Jackson who organize these events! Lastly, we also want to thank all of our families who participate in our fundraisers throughout the year to make programs like this possible! 

On Tuesday March 21st, our 5th Grade students learned about Electromagnetism with the Museum of Science.  During this presentation featuring high-tech museum equipment, students explored voltage, current, resistance, and the interrelationship between magnetism and electricity. They got to see someone's hair stand on end, create a human extension cord by sending an electric current through several people, and shoot a metal ring to the ceiling of the school! 

 

On Thursday March 23rd, our 4th Grade students learned about Motion with the Museum of Science.  During this presentation, students learned students how forces create motion, what simple machines have in common, and why this helps us perform a large amount of work with minimal force. Students used mechanical advantage to turn a wheel and axle against a stronger opponent, hauled their classmates across the room using pulleys, and lifted a teacher using a giant lever.
 
On March 20th, 21st and 24th, our Kindergarten students learned about Weather with the Discovery Museum.  These young meteorologists learned about the important role weather plays in daily life as they practiced science and engineering by developing tools for forecasting and observing day to day changes and seasonal patterns over time.
