How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

Learners will discover the science concepts of air pressure and the water cycle.  After talking about each concept, learners will look for examples to test these concepts.  They will make predictions before conducting experiments supporting these topics and take turns sharing their results with their peers.  We will brainstorm ways to improve or change our outcomes when necessary. 
There is no homework with this class.
Please have your child/ren bring the following items to class. Look around your house and gather them in a container for easy use. If you do not have an item, look for something similar. It is always good to work over a tray to catch spills and to keep a towel nearby. Day 1: The Water Cycle: ziploc bag, water, sharpie, food coloring, tape (to tape onto a window), cup of water, clear cup, food coloring, shaving cream, small bowl, eye dropper; hot water, glass jar, (optional hair spray), plate, ice Day 2: Air Pressure: bowl of water, cup, crumpled paper, tissue or napkin; piece of paper, cardboard or stiff paper or coaster bigger than the width of the cup; hot water, cold water, bowl to catch water, empty water bottle with lid, balloon; another water bottle with lid (can be a bigger bottle), ketchup packet. Day 3: Snow balls and a Snowstorm: jar (about the size that holds vitamins, salsa, pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce or gravy), baby oil or another oil, 2-3 tsp white paint or small bottle of white craft paint, water, bowl, spoon, white or clear glitter, (second color of glitter for fun but not necessary) 1 or 2 tablets of Alka Seltzer; cold or frozen corn starch, lotion, cold or frozen baking soda (or room temperature is fine) shaving cream, vinegar, small bowl, and eye dropper or spoon. Glitter and scents are optional. (This class will be a little messy with the shaving cream, baking soda, lotion and cornstarch. I suggest a tray to catch the mess from the snow storm and snow making and a cloth to wipe off 'snowy' hands.) Note: some experiments require hot water The demonstrations and experiments in this class are different than those in my class called “Experimenting With Science Weather Camp: Water Cycle, Tornadoes, and Hurricanes.” It is a similar class but does not build on this class. They can be taken together or apart since they use different experiments to teach the water cycle and air pressure concepts. The other class does not talk about snowstorms and blizzards. Instead it talks about tornadoes or hurricanes.
There is no formal assessment.
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be doing science experiments using household ingredients like baking soda, corn starch, vinegar, food coloring, shaving cream and a balloon.  We will use a bowl of hot / warm water to dip a bottle in and out several times.
