CLARK – Students at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School in Clark were energized by an assembly from Liberty Science Center.
Students in grades K-3 went on a journey with Sam the Dragon through the digestive system, in “Little Dragon’s Digestive System.” A few volunteers from each class got the chance to climb into a giant mouth, slide down an esophagus and end up in a churning stomach before squeezing through the small and large intestines. The obstacle course introduced the students to the names and functions of the basic parts of the digestive system.
Students in grades 4-5 observed how Newton’s Laws and sports all have one thing in common – science, in the “Science Sportacular!” Newton’s Laws were demonstrated using various sports equipment. The students learned how a pitcher makes a baseball curve and a few volunteers joined in a momentum race. The science educators even showed the students the concepts related to helmet safety by lying on a sharp bed of nails.
