GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT JACK ANDERSON!
- We are excited to host Sumner Regional Medical Center’s DaVinci Surgical multi-million dollar robot next Monday. As our STEM speaker for the day, Surgeon Dr. Jeff Hollis, will be demonstrating the robot’s abilities. Our goal is to inspire our K-5 students by showing how a robot can make such a difference in the operating room. If you are interested in becoming a STEM speaker, please contact your child’s teacher.

STEM LAB: Kindergarten is learning "All About Insects"! In the lab, they are building 3-dimensional replicas of insects. The insects must have the correct body parts, be 3-dimensional, and look like the insect their group was assigned.
STEM-task-tic: It was an icy STEM-task-tic Friday, as students tried to freeze a bottle of water in a very short amount of time, using the concept Freezing Point Depression.
