Articles about iSchool for the Future’s Renovation-themed Family Science Night at Forestville Elementary School were published in two local papers. Read the articles in the Sun Gazette and the Great Falls Connection.
Great Quotes from the articles and press release:
“It was so exciting to see the students of all grade levels engaged in solving real-world problems which must be solved in the construction process. I loved seeing the children weigh library books and come up with solutions for a temporary library location,” said Forestville Library Margarent Bylund. “The students had great fun and learned some great engineering and math lessons at the same time.”
“I am not an educator, but I am always learning something new. From that experience I have found that learning is much more effective when all the senses are engaged and when the information is relevant to our present life. This is what this science night has done,” said Forestville PTA President Jennisse Silvestri.
Forestville Principal Todd Franklin said: “The Science Night at Forestville was a tremendous success due to the time, efforts, and coordination of iSchool for the Future. Personnel provided a tremendous amount of project-based learning experiences for our children and have given them a firsthand look at a variety of science experiments. Experiments symbolized some of the logistical processes that will take place with our upcoming renovation. We are very appreciative of all their efforts and the students have enjoyed the experiences.”
