Urbas Science Week of Feb 29 - March 7

The 6th grade classes finished the series of experiments on temperature based of a set of Marie Curie experiments and we have sent our results in via e-mail to the American Physical Society. We should be receiving the results and scores in April. The kids really enjoyed the experiments and the level of participation and interaction was high. Pictures of a few of the experiments are below.
