SNOW SCIENCE FUN #1: LIVE CHICK BROODER CAM!

The chicks were supposed to hatch on Tuesday and Wednesday in the first and fourth grade classrooms at the Francis Wyman and Pine Glen schools.  Due to the blizzard, we decided to keep the eggs in the Science Center and students were able to watch the chicks hatch from home via our live web cam.  The chicks have now been moved to the brooder box (their home) and are growing as we speak.

Hope you enjoyed watching our live chick hatching! We hope to post more live web cam broadcasts in the future!


SNOW SCIENCE FUN #2: HOW MUCH WATER IN A FOOT OF SNOW?

How many inches of water does it take to make a foot of snow? The answer might surprise you!

Make a prediction, then watch Mr. Musselman’s “Blizzard Science” video posted below and perform the experiment for yourself!

You can use our step by step directions or design a similar experiment for yourself. Whatever your results, be sure to write them down so you can compare them with Mr. Musselman’s results or a friend’s!
