The Science of Noah – Recap

On Sunday, October 25, our Religious School turned into “The Science of Noah,” with three scientists leading STEM activities related to the Noah parsha (Torah portion). Our youngest students (Pre-K – 2) learned about the properties of light using prisms and talked about the covenant of the rainbow. Our 3rd – 6th Graders developed their engineering skills by building an ark out of aluminum foil and attempted to fill it with animals (metal hex nuts) without it sinking. Our 7th – 9th Graders also made an ark, but only after converting cubits to centimeters. All students learned about animal care and we able to sample some “poop” (brown m&ms).

Thank you to Giorgio Ascoli, Andy Lovinger, and Matt Kane for sharing their scientific knowledge with our students!
