Making academics fun

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Who says learning can’t be fun? Barranca Elementary School is out to prove that academics are not just memorization and lectures – there can be a lot of entertainment and interest involved in exploring different subjects.

The school will unveil the fun in academics from 6-7 p.m. Feb. 2 during Family Math and Science Night.

There will also be a PTO fundraiser dinner from 5:30-6 p.m. in the school’s gym.

Numerous activities will run concurrently and students and their parents will be given maps to determine which activities they would like to participate in.

These activities include Zome Geometry and bubbles, paper airplanes, gumdrop-toothpick geometric constructions, sink/float activities, tangrams, Smart Board activities, jump rope graphing, card games and computer math and science applications in the lab.

Additionally, the Española Wildlife Center will be present at the event.

Activities will be planned and run by school staff along with the principal, superintendent and parent volunteers.

Sharon Allen, Family Math and Science Night coordinator, explained family fun nights have been held in the past but this is the first time the school has hosted a math and science program.
