Lincoln Lunch Change 5/5/17 PDF Print E-mail

Lincoln School Families,

It was discovered this morning that we had a malfunction on a boiler pump, which filled the tank, causing water to to come out.  In addition to that, the sump pump line burst. This all occurred in the basement. We currently do not have hot water at Lincoln, and it appears we won't the remainder of the day.  Due to this, Lincoln lunch has changed.  We will be serving a Sunbutter sandwich, carrot sticks, a fresh fruit option, chips and a milk.  Please direct any questions to Teresa Beenblossom 653-3691.

 
4-H STEM Puts Robots on Parade PDF Print E-mail

April 25 the 4-H STEM Club hosted their final Project Showcase for community members and family members to see what the 26 members had learned and experienced with this month’s lessons about computer science. Youth were excited to spend more time with the bee bots and dash robots as well as create a fun presentation for their guests.

 

Washington County Extension & 4-H partnered together with a sponsorship from Bazooka Farmstar to offer this 4-H STEM Club to any 3rd-5th grade students who want to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math. The March and April sessions are being led by volunteers Liz Goodwin, Julie Timmins and Extension 4-H Staff Amy Green.

 

Since January, through the 4-H Afterschool STEM CLUB, there has been over 450 hours of hands-on science completed in the Lincoln Elementary School Library with students 3rd-5th grade. They have learned about wind energy, mechanical engineering, wheel and axel systems, coding, brain safety, helmet design, team work and problem solving.

 

STEM Club has concluded for hti syear, but the Washington County Extension’s summer day camp program, Clover University, is taking registrations. The complete listing of 25 camp offerings in five different communities is available at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/washington/news/clover-university-summer-camps-registration-open. Camps are filled on a first come, first serve basis with payment to the Washington County Extension Office.

 

 

In the 4-H afterschool STEM Club small groups were challenged on the final day to program their robots to perform a synchronized routine. These Dash robots were programmed through the Wonder app. This group made of Kyann M, Joe M and Nicholas C who programed their robots to not only move but to spin and talk together.

4-H STEM Club Catches the Wind PDF Print E-mail

The 4-H STEM Club continued their March session “Catch the Wind” March 14 afterschool taking over the Lincoln gymnasium. This month they are learning and working as mechanical engineers to sails and windmill blades to catch the wind.

 

26 participants had a great time finishing the design and building of their sail boat sails. Groups tested their ability to catch the wind and measured/timed the results. They used that material knowledge to then start the design of their windmill blades. The goal is the blades will turn causing the windmill to lift weight.

 

Washington County Extension & 4-H and Lincoln Elementary are partnering together with a sponsorship from Bazooka Farmstar to offer this 4-H STEM Club to any 3rd-5th grade student who wants to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

There is no STEM Club the week of March 20 due to WCSD spring break. A community showcase is planned for March 28 at 4:30 p.m. to showcase what the students have learned and built as mechanical engineers. Any community member is welcome to come learn more from these students and see their recycled racers in action.

 

Similar STEM opportunities will be available this summer through Washington County Extension’s Clover University summer day camps.
