Snow Day Science (optional)

stuck inside without much to do?
snow problem!
Burlington Science Center has two great science-packed suggestions to make the most of your snow day.


SNOW SCIENCE FUN #1: LIVE CHICK HATCHING!

The chicks were supposed to hatch on Tuesday and Wednesday in the first and fourth grade classrooms at the Francis Wyman and Pine Glen schools.  Due to the storm, we decided to set up a live webcam at the Science Center in one of the incubators.  Watch them from the comfort of your home by tuning in to our live chick incubator feed on the Burlington Science Center blog!  
**Note to parents: Sometimes, during the chick hatching process, unforeseen circumstances can occur.
The Science Center may choose to stop the live feed at any time.  Thanks for your understanding.

SNOW SCIENCE FUN #2: HOW MUCH WATER IN A FOOT OF SNOW?

How many inches of water does it take to make a foot of snow? The answer might surprise you!

Make a prediction, then watch Mr. Musselman’s “Blizzard Science” video posted on the Burlington Science Center blog and perform the experiment for yourself!

You can use our step-by-step directions or design a similar experiment for yourself. Whatever your results, be sure to write them down so you can compare them with Mr. Musselman or a friend!

Find both these experiments at

Third graders visit the Lowell Mills

Third graders visited the Lowell Mills on Friday
 and learned about life on the farms 
and factories in New England.






Dr. Conti's weather up date for possible school cancellation this week

“Weather or Not” – Week of January 25, 2015

I am hearing the same weather forecast as everyone else. It appears that we could be hit with some significant snow Monday through Wednesday. If everything unfolds as predicted, I am hoping to get the school day in on Monday. Please have back-up childcare plans for Monday afternoon, Tuesday and possibly Wednesday – depending on the clean-up.
Everyone will receive a telephone message with the final decisions, but I wanted to share my early thoughts given the information I am reading.
