Grants in Action: Space Camp 2017

Mrs. Rader sent us an email about the Space Camp TPSF funded through donations from our community.  Her enthusiastic commentary and the children's faces really tell the story of what a difference a donation can make.

From Mrs. Rader:

Imagining a trip to Mars!  We researched using books from our grant and made green screen pics!

Building and programming Mars Rovers with our Lego WEDO 2.0 Robotics Kits...thank you TPSF!

Launching Aquapod Rockets on graduation day--this launcher was funded through the grant.
Engineering "lunar Landers" --watching with anticipation during our egg drop trials.
We even got to investigate real lunar and meteorite samples on loan from NASA while reading our Who Was Neil Armstrong biographies!
Watching a new crew of astronauts join the International Space Station while we cared for our Tomatosphere seeds. Half of the seeds stayed on Earth. The other half spent a  month on the Space Station. We loved doing real science for NASA.

If you'd like to make a difference in public education and help support students and teachers, please make your tax deductible donation to Tahlequah Public Schools Foundation.
