Letter: Fun with science

Recently we had the opportunity to take Jackie Caputo’s Sopris Elementary School fifth-grade class to the Aspen Science Center. What an awesome place! There were so many fun science activities for the students to do. They could build a marble run, create an electric circuit to make a fan spin, investigate different items under a microscope and build a Lego car to race down a track. The most popular station for our group was where the students used various materials to build boats and/or cars to test out how wind can move them on the provided track or water lane. There were several other activities available, also. One thing’s for sure: This class didn’t get bored! The Aspen Science Center is available for school groups as well as individual exploring on Wednesdays and Sundays. Go have a blast!
