Middle School Atoms Present at STEM Expo
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021—Earlier today, Utica Academy of Science held its own STEM Expo! Hosted by Mrs. Cowen and Ms. Latray, 6th grade Atoms shared their impeccable scientific findings to a variety of questions including but are not limited to:
- Which citrus drink decays teeth faster?
- Does color and smell affect the taste of Skittles?
- Which popcorn pops the fastest?
- What dissolves faster: salt or sugar?
- What makes ice melt the fastest?
With their new found answers, students were tasked with not only implementing their science and research skills but their ELA skills as well, as they typed their findings and used their creativity to design poster boards with their science research project information. Students would then present their information to their classmates.
While this STEM Expo unfortunately had no prizes, Atoms did receive a grade for preparing and presenting their project in their class. Parents and guardians were also invited to join the STEM Expo online. Great work, Atoms!
