Science Night was a huge success
Tuesday, April 7th, the students from Bell's Hill participated in a Science Camp day. The students rotated from station to station during school hours, then proceeded to continue after school. The teachers all had their lab coats on to keep with the Science Night theme.
Students rotated through stations in which teachers taught about specific concepts such as The Rock Cycle, Friction & Motion, etc. After students completed their time studying Science, it was time for the parents to attend the Science Night. Parents then joined their children in their classrooms. Here the students gave presentations on science related concepts in which they have been learning about.
