This past fall semester, Girlstart After School Houston clubs enjoyed an incredibly fun and exciting curriculum. Read on to see a few highlights of Fall 2016!
Pop-Fly: Building Catapults
For this activity, students constructed catapults out of materials such as paper cups and popsicle sticks. Cotton balls were loaded into the catapults and launched, and girls evaluated the height, speed, and direction of the cotton ball’s flight.
Forensic Scientists: Investigating Solubility
Girls conducted experiments to test the effects of water on different types of markers. Students discovered that not all black markers dissolve in the same manner. Girls used this knowledge to determine the source of notes written in different black markers and write each other messages!
