3...2...1... Lift Off!
It's hard to believe today wraps up the 2023-2024 school year! We had an incredible year learning all things space... From VR trips to Mars, making code to traverse the face of the moon, creating insulated gloves for an astronaut suit, building rockets, making parachutes, and so. much. more. A big thank you to all those who made it happen this year from Mrs. Sarduy and Ms. Allen to the many volunteers and everyone who donated supplies and materials! We wish all our Blankner students an exciting and wonderful summer and hope they continue to "think globally, act locally" as they embark on their summer adventures. Stay tuned to find out what exciting theme lies ahead (or below) for 2023-2024!
SPACE CAMP COUNTDOWN
Countdown with us as Mrs. Sarduy & Mrs. Wygle prepare for launch to Space Camp! They'll travel out of this world to practice with authentic astronaut training simulators and participate in other activities developed to promote learning in a classroom setting. They will use NASA-inspired lesson plans that are correlated to the National Science Education Standards. All of which they can bring home and adapt to individual class environments at Blankner K-8! We are so excited to see what they learn and bring home!
INNOVATION NIGHT A SUCCESS!
Another "out of this world" Blankner Family Innovation Night showcasing all things STEAM in the books! Over 600 STEAM-loving students and family attended the event! Huge kudos to Mrs. Sarduy and Ms. Allen for all your hard work and dedication to make this night happen. And thank you to all the teachers and volunteers!
