Lakeway Elementary celebrates Science Day four days during the school year. This program makes math and science the focus of an entire day and involves every child and teacher at the school. Students participate in hands-on experiments throughout the school day. Science days are focused on creating a level of excitement and energy around science, as well as a sense that science both applies to each child’s everyday life and is easily understandable. Students will rotate through grade level classrooms and receive instruction from every teacher in the classroom. We often involve guest presenters such as the Austin Planetarium, science educators, and other Austin area science foundations. We are always looking for science-focused groups who would like to participate.
This event is very volunteer intensive. We encourage all parents to work with your home room mother and classroom teacher to volunteer. A background in science is not necessary.
