Family Aerospace Festival

 

            Solomon Schechter Academy hosted a Family Aerospace Festival and pasta dinner on Monday, Feb. 1, 2010. The Festival was organized by Stuart Sharack, the husband of our 2nd grade teacher, Betsy Sharack, and who teaches 5th grade at Juliet A. Long Elementary School in Gales Ferry.  He was recently honored by the Civil Air Patrol as its inaugural “Aerospace Teacher of the Year”.
The Family Aerospace Festival featured hands-on activity stations that our children explored with their families. Some of the activities were: trying on spacesuits, testing flying objects, playing space jingo, learning the distances of planets in our solar system and drawing your favorite alien. The local Civil Air Patrol demonstrated aerodynamic principles.
The evening was a great success! Everyone had lots of fun learning about flight and space. It was an exciting way to integrate math and science.
