4th Graders Learn about Motion and Forces of Energy!

In-school field trips/enrichment programs are sponsored annually by MESA. MESA spends over $15,000 every year to bring exciting STEAM assemblies to all of the students at the Robinson and Jordan/Jackson. 

On Friday March 9th, 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.

FYI -- 5th Graders were going to learn about Electromagnatism with the Museum of Science on March 13th, but this has now been postponed to Monday April 9th due to the weather.
