Louis S. Sheffield Elementary hosted its 2008 Family Science Night on October 23, providing students with the opportunity to understand how scientists work and how science is used in everyday life.
Classroom science projects were on display in the halls for students to visit, and organizations were in attendance to discuss how science applies to their jobs. These presenters included Mosquito Control, the Environmental Protection Board, Greenscape, JEA, the St. Johns Water Management District, Florida Ag in the Classroom, 4-H and the U.S. Navy Toxic Cleanup Team.
Many teachers pitched in to make water bracelets for the students to wear, as well as edible aquifers.
The event served as the official kick-off for individual science projects that will be entered in the school’s science fair in November.
