Cool in School: The Science & History of Keeping Cool

Join us for fact-finding and innovative discovery experiences related to the science and history of keeping cool. Temperature change is an important factor throughout human history and one that is often misunderstood today. We will explore how humans and living organisms have kept cool over time and why places are sometimes hot and sometimes not.  Students will research about how humans kept cool in the past, how they keep cool now and take part in engineering projects that solve problems related to keeping cool or warm in the future! There will also be fun, refreshing activities to keep the spirit of summer alive! Students will learn to document their process of learning using Google Tools and the SeeSaw app. Skills that will be focused upon will include: research, gathering data from maps, use of evidence to develop explanations, communication, design thinking, collaboration and documentation.
