Wow, what a great morning here at MCS! First thing this morning, our entire staff and student body came together for a wonderful assembly. We began by singing one of our favorite peace songs, Light A Candle for Peace, and then two MCS parents gave a wonderfully exciting science presentation. It was so lovely to see all of our students, from our young Toddlers to our big Upper Elementary students, show excitement and interest in the experiments.
Janis Cantwell, research scientist at the University of Utah, and Holly Sebahar, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Utah, both parents of Early Childhood students, showed the following experiments of chemical reactions; the effects of a catalyst; things that changed from liquid to solid and the formation of stronger bonds; liquids changing colors and bubbling and smoking; how fireworks work; what hydrogen looks like when popping from a balloon as opposed to helium; and for the grand finale, Holly made a cloud!
It was so satisfying to see all of our students enjoying the presentation and we are all looking forward to the upcoming Science Fair on April 7th. After today’s presentation we think our little scientists are quite inspired!
