Buchanan families enjoyed an evening with science. The Family Museum provided 10 hands-on stations like Rubber Band Cars, Static Electricity, Catapults, and Putter’s Edge just to name a few. A first grader expressed to his teacher Mrs. Nykoluk the next day “It was so much fun! I made a kite, we won a prize and had PIZZA!”
Although this was an event hosted for Buchanan families, it was a community effort with volunteers from Buchanan staff, Christ Church, North High School Ambassadors, and Central High School Key Club helping to make it a success. Buchanan believes having events like Family Science Night helps to prepare our students for the steady growing STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) throughout the Davenport Community Schools District.
