A note from Mrs. Moore: Dear Family of our Future Scientists,
An important part of the science program here at DMCA involves a hands-on approach to learning where students are actively engaged and become problem-solvers. Throughout the year the students will be doing many inquiry-based labs using standard lab equipment and technology. However, another important portion of their learning will come from the STEM-based challenges during Early Childhood & Elementary Labs, and Middles School Science Stations. For these challenges, students are often required to design and build an apparatus or model to apply their knowledge of the subject matter. This is where you come in.
The students and I are asking that you take a look at the list below and see if we can help you tidy up those junk drawers and pantries by taking some common household items off your hands…in the name of science, of course.
Thank you for your contribution and being an important part of the success of our future scientists!
