Science Enrichment

The world around is filled with scientific wonder. District staff Theresa Crain, Shane Fox, and Michelle Barff bring MEF-funded Science Experiences to the elementary students in McMinnville School District. This year, they have translated the content of the traditional in-person science experience to the virtual world. For the 5th graders, PearDeck was used to create interactive slides allowing the students to answer questions and draw the anticipated water path on the image. District 3rd- and 4th-graders received materials at home for simple experiments to do with Mrs. Crain in the Zoom sessions. The 2nd graders received images of habitats and a scavenger hunt document so they could interact with Mrs. Crain as she demonstrated the critters found in the pond habitat at Miller Woods.
