From Mr Taff:
This year a select group of twelve elementary schools in northern Illinois including LaSalle II will compete in a Science Olympiad for 3-5th graders.
Mr Taff and Ms Aquino are leading a series of after school science sessions for the 48 students who signed up to participate. Up to 10 groups of 3, each focused on a unique science challenge will travel to the competition once that date is finalized.
The students have created egg toss vehicles, dissected a chicken wings, built straw bridges, and flown paper airplanes. Did you know that the bones and muscles of a chicken wing resemble the parts of a human arm?
The remaining practice sessions will be held every other Thursday at 2:45-4:00 through April. Please check the school calendar for specifics.
