Over 200 students completed a 4-week summer school program at West Woods wrapping up an intensive program including literacy, math, science and more geared at continued summer learning and providing enriching experiences to extend curricular concepts.
One of the most exciting events was when summer school scholars stretched their brain with geometry in a Geodome workshop. This interactive program had students building 3-dimensional shapes and learning about vertices, line segments, polygons and polyhedrons. At the end of the 75-minute workshop each grade level built a giant geodome large enough for the entire grade level to get inside. All of the students also enjoyed a presentation from the CT Science Center on the Science of Suds where they learned about density, friction, dry gas, cloud formation and the difference between air and helium. Learning has never been so fun!
