Science and Math Elementary Exploration Set for November 10

LANSING 10/11/12 – Elementary children (grades K-6) from Ingham, Clinton and Eaton Counties are encouraged to attend Lansing Community College’s (LCC) annual Science & Math Exploration Day (SMEE) on November 10, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

The activities will take place in the Arts & Sciences Building on LCC’s Main Campus. The fee for each child is $3 with accompanying adults free.  Registration is available on the day of the event at the Arts & Sciences first floor lobby beginning at 8 a.m.

SMEE (formerly called Elementary Science Olympiad) is a day for children to come to campus and experience hands-on science and math activities. All events are non-competitive with an emphasis on learning.  Among the day’s highlights are:

  • Circuit Wizardry – Students will have an opportunity to investigate simple circuits. Make the buzzer ring! Make the light bulb shine!
  • Dangerous Boys and Daring Girls – This event features activities from the popular books “Dangerous Boys” and “Daring Girls.”
  • Deep Blue Sea – What organisms can you find in the deep blue sea? Come and “sea” what you can learn about the deep blue sea and the animals and plants that live there.
  • Fossil Hunt – Students can see how fossils are made, look at fossils and place them on a geologic era chart.
  • Leader Dogs – Do you know how dogs are trained to help the visually impaired? Talk to a trainer about the details of dog training and care.
  • Moon Craters – Ever thought about how the craters on the moon were made? This event investigates the relationship between asteroids and crater size.
  • Science of Music – How do different musical instruments make sound? Learn about different instruments, pitch, vibration, and how to make them work.
  • Veterinary Technician – Ever wonder what’s inside a racehorse? This event explores the possibilities of working with animals from the “inside” out.
  • Zap – This event is all about static electricity. Shocking!
