Scientists and artists of the future

Teacher with two students making colored liquids

Our preschoolers at Autumn Lane Elementary are already experimenting and exploring science. Teacher Stephanie Sekaz and her OT Amanda introduced the class to the world of inquiry and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) with an exercise for their five senses. Students gathered vinegar into pipettes and then added it to dishes filled with "pumpkins" they had made out of baking soda, water and food coloring to see the chemical reaction that was triggered. The baking soda pumpkins dissolved! Students also experimented with mixing colors: greens, turquoises, blues and oranges. So much learning and so much fun!
