Partnership with St. Francis College

We’ve officially established a relationship with St. Francis College that will help us create a college-oriented culture with our students. This partnership will include many benefits to our students, including visits from the SFC Admissions team, visits and talks from President Miguel Martinez-Saenz with students and faculty, visits for our students to SFC with personalized building tours and presentations, and opportunities for student and families to attend NCAA Division 1 athletic events. 

Students will also benefit from a student-teaching partnership with opportunities for tutoring and classroom teaching; STEM lectures and classes with access to SFC lab activities; and future access to SFC summer science and entrepreneurship programs.  This collaboration will help us provide exposure to college benefits to our students early in their academic careers. See the Currents News report and Instagram post below to learn more.

Magnetic Superpowers

This week BRC scientists were familiarized with magnetic superpowers and even attracted metals. Everyone knows that Santa 🎅 lives on North Pole but we learned that a magnetic pole located there too.

Using that knowledge we made a paper clip 🧷compass 🧭 and it worked. We saw how magnetic field can work from a distance when we played “Try not to get splashed game” and watched a cereal flake 🥣 follow a magnet.

The most fun was to see metallic sand to make hedgehogs 🦔 on a tray. We even touched 🦔 spikes))).

Our Scientists Learn With Marvel

Our Marvel Science Lab after school program, which teaches science through cool superhero-based experiments, began this week.

During our first session, students explored the superpowers of air pressure. Working with their Marvel Science Lab instructors, they built gliders with hoops instead of wings and competed to see whose plane flew the farthest. Mr. Denis also demonstrated an experiment where a huge plastic bottle was squeezed by air.
