Dear Parents and Guardians:
Last week your child participated in a presentation by
George Pastirik of Science Is... The presentation focused on the
final project in our Using Electricity unit, which is building an
electric car. Through the presentation students learned about basic car
structure, building principals, and they collected ideas for their own car designs.
All students will be creating their own car during class time. We will be using primarily recycled items that you could help collect at home (cardboard or coroplast, milk lids, skewers and straws are especially useful). Other supplies like motors, pulleys and wires are also available to borrow from the school though students are encouraged to purchase their own if they would like to keep the items.
For purchase information and pricing, please see the order form from Science Is… Please make your cheques payable to the school (we will make one large deposit to George Pastirik after all order forms are received).
You can help as well by collecting supplies to send in or by volunteering your time (and glue gun) to come and help in our classroom once we start building. If you are interested in joining us, please contact your child’s teacher.
Please return your completed order form and a cheque made out to our school by May 24th if you plan to order supplies.
