Science & Math Elementary Exploration Set for November 12


LANSING 10/31/11 – Elementary children (grades K-6) from Ingham, Clinton and Eaton Counties are encouraged to attend Lansing Community College’s (LCC) annual Science & Math Exploration Day (SMEE) on November 12, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

The activities will take place in the Arts & Sciences Building on LCC’s Main Campus. The fee for each child is $3 with accompanying adults free.  Registration is available on the day of the event at the Arts & Sciences first floor lobby beginning at 8 a.m.

SMEE (formerly called Elementary Science Olympiad) is a day for children to come to campus and experience hands-on science and math activities. All events are non-competitive with an emphasis on learning.  Among the day’s highlights are:

·         Circuit Wizardry – Students will have an opportunity to investigate simple circuits. Make the buzzer ring! Make the light bulb shine!

·         Fossil Hunt – Students can see how fossils are made, look at fossils and place them on a geologic era chart.

·         Leader Dogs – Do you know how dogs are trained to help the visually impaired? Talk to a trainer about the details of dog training and care.

·         Moon Craters – Ever thought about how the craters on the moon were made? This event investigates the relationship between asteroids and crater size.

·         Science of Music – How do different musical instruments make sound? Learn about different instruments, pitch, vibration, and how to make them work.

·         Slime – Come and create slime! Investigate this fun polymer.

·         Veterinary Technician – Ever wonder what’s inside a racehorse? This event explores the possibilities of working with animals from the “inside” out.

·         Zap – This event is all about static electricity. Shocking!
