South Newton student leaders recently led a family science night of hands-on experiments and all kinds of fascinating science facts. Resources were provided free of charge to South Newton from Duke Energy as a part of the North Carolina Science Festival. South was one of 150 schools across the state chosen for the Duke Energy investigations kit. Students were the lead scientists in over one dozen stations where fellow students and parents made everything from unusual bubble shapes to stomp rockets to parachutes to towers to catapults to invisible ink. Not only did they make and create these things, they learned the science behind how they work! Teachers, parents, and other adults served as assistants to the student scientists. Approximately 200 students and family members attended the event. Everyone agreed that it was a wonderful night of play AND learning!
