It was all about atoms, molecules, chemical changes and things that go pop at East Meadows today. Clark Planetarium sponsored an assembly for students to observe and participate in science experiments. Students were encouraged to not only make observations but to also learn to communicate their observations by using their five senses. Sixth-grade students continued with their own small assembly and learned about the planets. They lined up and spaced themselves appropriately in order to gain a perspective of the distance between the planets in our solar system. East Meadows thanks Clark Planetarium for providing an interactive learning experience for the students.
