Primary School to Host Science Night 3/29

The Hudson Falls Primary School is hosting a Science Night from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29. The evening, in collaboration with the Science National Honor Society and Science Research programs, will give primary students the opportunity to participate in experiments at stations facilitated by our high school students.

Check out the fun and engaging activities that will be presented at Science Night:

  • Lava Lamps – Create your own Lava Lamp to take home.
  • Want to Build a Snowman – Learn how to make homemade “snow”.
  • Float Your Boat – What makes a boat float? Make your own boat and see how much weight it can hold before it sinks.
  • Invisible Ink – Write secret messages using only lemons.
  • A Shocking Experience – Enjoy a hair raising demonstration of the Van der Graaf generator to learn about static electricity and the power of moving electrons.
  • Leaning Tower of Spaghetti – Make the tallest tower you can using only spaghetti and tape.
  • Let’s Make Music – Learn how to make your own harmonica.
  • Objects at Rest – Challenge yourself to be like Isaac Newton and try inertia tricks.

The Science National Honor Society is composed of juniors and seniors who have maintained  a 90 (or higher) average in all science classes. Inducted students must also encourage and recognize scientific thought, and work to instill and grow the scientific and educational climate throughout our district.

The Science Research Program is a three-year elective, beginning in sophomore year. Students choose a topic and carry out self-guided research on that topic. During the students’ junior and senior years, they can also elect to take the course for college credit through SUNY Albany.

We hope you can join us on March 29 for a fun and informative night!
