HTHT of South Florida Makes A Splash At Manatee Bay Elementary

Recently, High Touch High Tech of South Florida took 4th grade students from Manatee Bay Elementary on an Underwater Adventure. HTHT Scientists Isis, Justin & Mike dove into the “Sea Ya Later” program with the students to explore all the wonders of the deep blue sea. The kids had a blast getting hands-on with sea creatures such as real sea horses, sand dollars, starfish, clams and unusual shells. Check out the video below that Manatee Elementary posted to!

HTHT of Oakland County, Michigan – “Science Made Fun” Camps Offer Kids A “Stay-cation”

Students and teachers create a circle by holding hands in order to act as a conduit to pass current from a small battery to illuminate a light bulb

Last week, High Touch High Tech of Oakland County, Michigan gave the students in Birmingham Schools a FUN option for their mid-winter break. While some kids left town for a vacation, the ones that didn’t  enjoyed a hands-on science “stay-cation.” Students from all over the Birmingham School district gathered at Berkshire Middle School for High Touch High Tech’s “Science Made Fun” camps. The Kindergarten – 5th grade students became scientists for the week, exploring the solar system, electricity, the laws of motion, dinosaurs and even chemistry!

During Shockme Day, students get to use their hands to direct the flow of electricity in a Plasma Ball.

“Science Made Fun” camps give students the opportunity to experience interactive, fun and exciting science first hand.  The kids were so excited about High Touch High Tech’s week long camp that on Monday, despite the heavy snow storm, more than 90% of scheduled students found a way to make it to school!

Tuesday had full attendance. It was Shockmee Day as students experimented with static electricity and electric currents. Wednesday was Pushing and Pulling Day, as students experimented with the three laws of motion and how to lift objects with little effort. Thursday was Going Crazy for Dinos as students learned about fossils and bones and facts from the past. Friday was Mix Me Up Day as students made chemical reactions explode — some with shocking results.
