Over the past two months, Stairway boys have enjoyed their new exploring science classes. Rather than trying to explain abstract scientific thoughts and concepts that are difficult to grasp, we decided the best approach for our curious kids would be to encourage them to learn science through exploration and experimentation.
Last August, amidst strong winds and rain, super excited Stairway boys successfully launched their homemade water rockets created from found materials of plastic Coke bottles, some pieces of cardboard and a cork plug. Pumping furiously, some of the rockets shot off higher than the trees while others barely left the ground. Nevertheless, the children persevered until they all had made a successful launch. This was just one of the many science successes the Stairway boys experienced in their new Exploring Science classes.
