Dragonfly "SciGirls" Science Camp Highlights
What happens when you pop water balloons, toss eggs, fly water-propelled
rockets or pull the tablecloth out from under the dishes? Apparently,
you get science.
Thirteen young scientists, from 5th to 8th grade levels, spent a week in
July learning about science, conducting experiments and having fun,
under the leadership of SDPB Education Specialist Steve Rokusek. Their
adventures will be aired as part of SDPB Televisionâ€™s educational Kidsâ€™
The new Kids' Quest program
"Investigators on the job" will air in the overnight schedule
throughout the year.
The student scientists, from the Minn-Ia-Kota Girl Scout Council in
Sioux Falls, learned about physics and chemistry using simple materials
like eggs, water, clay, balloons, popsicle sticks, aluminum and paper.
Kidsâ€™ Quest Web site, under â€œLearningâ€ at sdpb.org,
will offer South Dakota teachers a variety of easy-to-do experiments to
do in their own classrooms.
