April 23rd-24th – In-Class Experiments

As part of their science curriculum, each student will be participating in an in-class experiment. Blythe Park PTA has hired High Touch-High Tech to conduct hands-on science workshops for each class.  Each classroom teacher has selected a hands on experiment that a scientist from High Touch-High Tech will lead each classroom through.  Make sure to ask your children about them.

April 22, 27 and 29 – “Science and a Sandwich”
To encourage participation in the Science Fair, Blythe Park PTA will be holding three more “Science and a Sandwich Sessions” during lunch.  On April 22nd, the lunch sessions will be executing a science experiment.  On April 27th and April 29th, students will receive help in making presentation boards of the experiments completed the prior week for the science fair.  Each of the lunch science experiment sessions has a capacity of 16 students.  Please sign-up by clicking on the button below.
