Limelight School of the Week: Cape Fear Christian Academy
Hello Scientists, I hope everyone is having a wonderful and exciting Spring. Playing sports, riding bikes, and enjoying this weather in anticipation of being able to go to the pool and cooking on the grill. Our season has been jammed pack full of classes and meeting new students and teachers. One of those new groups was the Fourth Graders at Cape Fear Christian Academy in Erwin, NC.
I believe I have stated before, one of my favorite things is to go into a classroom for the first time and see how the children begin the class so quiet and shy because they have no idea what to expect or how exciting things are about to get and within 10 minutes everyone is raising their hands, asking questions, telling me stories, so much so that I often have to tell the kids that I wish I could keep calling on them but if we don’t continue the lesson, we will never complete all the great activities.
We had so much fun with our lesson “It Doesn’t Phase Me,” learning about the moon and where it came from, learning and making craters as well as covering the different phases of the moon.
After class, while I was cleaning up, the children began asking me questions. Some were science related and then others were off the wall such as do I know the WOAH. I said, “the what.” Then they proceeded to show me some new dance called the WOAH. After I did it, the entire class began clapping and cheering. IT WAS AWESOME!!!
Well, I would like to thank Mrs. Mason and the Fourth Graders at Cape Fear Christian Academy for having High Touch High Tech be part of your lesson and I can’t wait to see you again next year.
This week’s LIMELIGHT SCHOOL OF THE WEEK IS……Pleasant Union Elementary School, Raleigh, NC.
Hello Scientists!!! This week was packed full of fun and amazing lessons covering a wide variety of topics. The list included: having fun with sound, learning about forces and motions, building robots and our lesson at the Limelight school of the week, Jurassic Classic.
The 4th Graders at Pleasant Union Elementary enjoyed learning about the history of the earth, where it came from and how it changed as time went by. They also had a tremendous amount of enthusiasm as we began our experiments, so much in fact, that they didn’t want to stop talking about each one so that we could move onto the next.
We spent so much time observing, talking, and asking questions that for each class, I had to quickly set up and perform the last experiment myself in order to complete our lesson as planned. It is amazing how quickly 75 minutes can pass by when every child interacts and participates in our fun and interactive lesson.
I would like to give a BIG shout out to the 4th graders at Pleasant Union Elementary and Ms. Coleman for sporting the HTHT Lanyard!! Thank you so much for having High Touch High Tech be part of your learning experience. 😊
Until next time, this is “Meteor” Martin blasting off.
The Academy for Business & Technology Elementary School welcomes back High Touch High Tech of Detroit. Students over the past several years have taken part in High Touch High Tech’s fun & educational science experiences. Each experience has provided a hands-on, up close & personal interaction with science that they students really enjoy!
This year’s experiences include: “Newton in a Nutshell” for Kindergarten; “Weather or Not” for 1st grade; “What’s the Matter” for 2nd grade; “Sounds Like Fun” for 3rd grade; “Edison’s Workshop” for 4th grade; and “Up, Up and Away” for 5th grade. HTHT has customized each program to be grade appropriate & ensures the experiments relate to the science grade level content standards. In each program, HTHT Scientists will engage students in activities that not only teaches the science, but allows the student to experience the science & see the scientific concepts at work first-hand!
You too can experience the FUN of hands-on science with a High Touch High Tech workshop! If you are in the Detroit area including Macomb & Wayne Counties, contact :
On November 7th, students at Forest City Dunbar Elementary stepped into the shoes of a real geologist. Students went on an adventure with HTHT Scientist Ali-Gator as they learned all about geology and even mined for real gems. 4th grade teacher, Ms. Brookman, said “Thank you for making such a positive difference in our students. They are totally in love with science now!” Check out these awesome letters we received from the students:

High Touch High Tech Atlanta is bringing their exciting & fun “Finally Fun Machines” program to Anderson Elementary School today! Anderson Elementary school, located in Clayton County, GA has 77 students that are spread throughout the 4th grade class. Each student will get have the opportunity to get hands on while they discover the FUN world of machines. They will get to meet the Facilitator, our cool multi-personality compound machine. Engage in pulley power, lifting levers, and incline plane antics as they build one big machine with all six simple ones. The 4th grade class will definitely get “energized” today as they “work” through potential and kinetic energy! This sounds like it is going to be a great day for science in the Atlanta area.
