Jiggle Jelly at Science Museum

In celebration of Lights On Afterschool, about 25 members of the fourth- and fifth-grade science club at Fairview Elementary Schools took a field trip to the Kern County Museum on October 20th. There, students participated in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) workshop called "Jiggle Jelly," in which students explored the look, feel and other properties of polymers. They also studied the differences between manmade and natural polymers and learned about the polymers present in everyday plastics and foods.
