This is Science?!

Written by SmartLab Learning

This is a fun time of year at Creative Learning Systems. All of our hard work over the summer is rewarded as learners see their school’s SmartLab HQs for the first time and we hear the reactions.

This story comes to us from new SmartLab Facilitator Elisa Cohen at Lake International School, in Denver, CO:

I invited some students in to help me label and finish getting the lab ready. Step one was to set up the solar oven and bake some cookies. 

The kid in charge said, “OMG, this is science!” He explored it for awhile and then turned to the manual, saying, “Before I go further, I need to read how this works.” 

Such music to my ears!

Thanks for sharing, Elisa!
