Integrated science designed and built mousetrap cars as part of a physics unit. All three designs ultimately did not work, but the students had a lot of fun with this project!

Early Friday morning, students in grades PK thru 6th and their dads gathered in the EPS Gym for Donuts With Dad! Mr. Wemhoff starts off the event with donuts, coffee, juice or milk. Several library books, bean bags, and chairs are spread throughout the gym for students and their dads to enjoy before heading off to school or work. As always, we had a great turnout for this event and many thanks to Mr. Wemhoff and his crew for putting on this event.

Mr. Childers traveled with 6 science students to Pierce, NE to the annual Wonderful World of Water Day on Sept. 18th. Students were able to learn about water and the environment through interactions at several different stations. Some of the stations included aquatic insects, owls, water pollution, and environmental runoff. The students had a great day, and even came home with the most creative water-bottle rocket design! Please click on the photos and enjoy the many pictures of the day.
