Teach will be providing the awesome drink and telling you about our awesome upcoming SPLASH EVENT , and you will be providing your awesome self!

Hmmm.. Think you're pretty SMArT? Smarter than a 5th grader!?

It's that time of year again.. This isn't your typical science fair - It's time for the SMArT Achievement Party! A chance to celebrate guided inquiry and smart kiddos at their finest.


 


 


 


Speaking of inquiry... 


 


Ever wondered how a shark can swallow fish whole?...and what happens to the fish right after it gets eaten?! 


 


How voice activated or solar-powered robots work?


 


How freshwater biomes and other types of ecosystem sustain life?


 


...or how to simulate a magnetic tornado?!


 


 


 


 


 


Come learn the answers to all of these questions and much, much more at this Fall's SMArT Achievement Party on Monday, November 24th in the Bishop's Lounge from 5 - 6pm. 


 


 


 


Refreshments and cake will be provided! Come support your fellow SU mentors and uprising, future scientists from Jack Frost Elementary!

Community Service and Fund-Raising

Opportunity to help Ferguson!

Would you like to raise the spirits of those who are protesting the police brutality in Ferguson? Send a note of inspirtation to an activist, here's how:



Dear Supporter,


Thank you, for reaching out to support the brave women & men, taking a stand in Ferguson.



Cards from Ferguson was created to help supporters reach out to Ferguson, in a very personal & tangible way. As the time wears on, the emotional & spiritual well being of activists needs lifting. This is where you come in! 



How it Works



  • YOU write out cards, post-cards and send them to either specific demonstrators of your choice, or to "My Ferguson Friend". Cards written to "My Ferguson Friend" will go to new comers, or people who are in need of a lift.

  • Send them to the PO Box

  • We will deliver



Suggestions on WHAT to Send


  • Postcards, handwritten notes, with bright & energizing colors seem to be most popular with the crowd.

  • Small gift cards, tokens from other places, and "Stocking Stuffer" type items are always a hit! Please either place inside the card, or tape to the card if it is meant to go to someone specific!

  • The stamps get noticed too!


Where to Send It & How



  • Cards to specific people can be addressed to their Twitter name, nickname, or first name. If you need help with this, please ask. We are working on a list that can help, available only upon request.

  • If you don't mind a Thank You card back, please put an index card/label with your return address INSIDE the card. 

  • If you are on Twitter, let them know your @name!!
