    Eisenhower Stepping Stones and Putnam Museum enrichment

    Putnam Museum Brings Exotic Insects to Eisenhower Stepping Stones

    Karla Thayer, Education Specialist at the Putnam Museum, recently visited Eisenhower Elementary’s Stepping Stones program to provide an engaging science enrichment to students. Ms. Thayer brought hissing cockroaches (native to Madagascar) for students to see. Students learned a great deal about these interesting insects, discussing everything from the rainforest habitat of Madagascar to the anatomy of the insect’s head, thorax, and abdomen. It was a fun lesson where students received some after-school learning in science, geography, and even a visual art activity. Enjoy the photos!

    Greg Wolf, Education Director at the Quad City Botanical Center, recently visited Wilson Elementary’s Stepping Stones program to provide a fun and educational science enrichment to students. During the visit, students learned about the biology of worms (specifically their sensitivity to daylight) and embarked on a scavenger hunt related to the process of “vermicomposting,” or using worms to aid in creating compost. Enjoy the photos!

    Stepping Stones students visited Youth Fest today, on a pleasant morning where temperatures stayed just below 70 degrees. Youth Fest is an annual event that takes place at Fejervary Park and is organized by the City of Davenport Parks and Recreation Department. Students enjoyed the fun and educational event, engaging in art and music activities, a petting zoo, STEM activities, learning labs, and many other fun stations. Enjoy today’s photo gallery!
