You’ve probably heard of Bill Nye the Science Guy, but did you know that at Willow Grove, we’ve got Bruce! Bruce Wollitz is a Resource Scientist who shares unique, interesting and often hands-on science experiences that are relevant to all grades levels at Willow Grove. Completely funded by the Educational Foundation, Bruce has been challenging our grizzlies to learn about Science in fun and engaging ways. Last year, he was able to create a cloud in a bottle, helping students visualize and understand how real conditions affect weather. The reaction from the kids has been so great over the past year that the foundation was excited to be able to have Bruce back for another exciting year of experiments that will kick-off on Thursday, September 24th with a Science Assembly.
How about a sneak peek at what’s coming this year? Well, Bruce is big on the element of surprise, so while he doesn’t want to give too much away, here’s a hint…it has to do with dissection (at least for the older grade levels). Be sure to ask your kids about what they are learning from Bruce.
