Upper Elementary students at Gateway Academy have delved straight into practicing the steps of the Scientific method by testing the surface tension of a penny and came up with some fascinating results, a record of 32 drops of water on a penny. Results also changed dramatically when the penny was dipped in soap first. Students of Gateway participate weekly in science enrichment classes.
Lower Elementary students have been excited about studying botany these past few weeks. To finish up their studies of plants, students brought in different parts of plants and participated in making tons of salad for all to enjoy. It’s been an exciting week of discovering and learning at Gateway.
