IT’S SCIENCE FAIR TIME AGAIN!
AUSTIN SCHOOLS WORKING TO IMPROVE STUDENT PROFICIENCY IN SCIENCE
Scores on a recent national science exam reveal that American elementary and high school students are lagging in their knowledge of science. Schools in Austin are working hard to reverse this trend by emphasizing hands-on exploration of science. The University of Illinois Extension Science Bus visited Ella Flagg Young School with lessons in mass, weight, and density to help students grasp concepts of physics.
State Senator Don Harmon visited St. Angela students in their new science laboratories. Duke Ellington School hosted the Area 3 Science Fair with 48 students from 17 elementary schools presenting their projects.
