Visit Colonial Williamsburg at:
Science, We will study about matter, the "stuff" that all things are made of. We will be studying elements and compounds.&nbsp; Students will "adopt" an atom. They will research the element, design a 3-dimensional model of it, do a Power Point presentation on it and do a display board for it.

     This year, we will have a visiting Astronomer working with our class through Project Astro.&nbsp; Our Astronomer is a rocket scientist (actually an electrical engineer) who works for Lockheed Martin.&nbsp; He received his degrees at UC Berkeley and Stanford.

We will have  a star gazing party on Feb. 3rd at Vinci 6:30-8 PM
