Future Lincoln-Way North High School students are invited to learn about minerals, energy and the habitats of native animals during a Science Family Night and Book Fair at the school March 13.
The school’s science teachers are coming together to lead youngsters, grades K-6, in a series of lessons and experiments with the help of students in the high school’s Environmental Action Club, Science Club and Science National Honor Society.
“Our students and faculty are anxious to share their passion for science,” said science teacher Maria Wilson.
This is the second year science instructors have held the Future Phoenix Science Family Night. It is modeled after the school’s Future Phoenix Family Reading Night, which was developed by colleagues a few years ago.
New to this year’s Future Phoenix Science Family Night is a Book Fair, giving youngsters and their parents a chance to purchase books throughout the evening. The selection will include everything from Pre-K to late adolescence.
Proceeds will benefit the school library.
During the science portion of the evening, earth science teachers will talk about minerals while biology teachers will discuss animals and their habitats.
Physics teachers will talk about energy and chemistry teachers will show youngsters how to make tie-dye shirts.
Each session will last about 25 minutes.
The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. and conclude at 8 p.m.
Children will be grouped according to age and will be ushered through the various earth science, biology, physics, chemistry and forensics.
Parents/guardians must stay in the building for the entire program. They are asked to park in front of the school and enter through the front doors.
For more information, or to register for the March 13 program, contact Maria Wilson at email@example.com by March 1. Please include each child’s name, age and shirt size. Only the first 100 students to RSVP may attend since space is limited.
