Garrison Forest 4th and 5th Graders Recreate Feats of Botany With Circuitry

0 Written by: | Monday, Feb 01, 2016 12:01pm

GFS STEAM week

How do plants respond to their environment? Sunflowers track the sun; morning glories close up at night, and Venus flytraps sense and trap prey. Can you recreate these feats of botany and biology with circuitry?

From February 1 through February 5, the fourth and fifth-grade students at Garrison Forest School will engineer their own plants that react to external stimuli in GFS’s second annual STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design and math) week.

Every Friday, Baltimore Fishbowl recaps some of the most interesting research coming out of Maryland universities, hospitals, and other research institutes. Sometimes it involves psychedelic drugs; other times, prosthetic penises. Here are some of our favorite Baltimore-area research findings from 2015: Read More →

Send the Kids on an Adventure with Tripster

Kids at the Franklin Institute

catch of the day fish (2)Kids jump for joy when school is out for a day, a week, or even three long months. But parents are sometimes less enthused. You can’t make everyday “Take Your Child to Work Day,” nor, really, would most of us want to. But the kids need something to do, and isn’t it better for everyone if they get to spend the day doing something social, enriching, potentially educational, and most of all, fun? That’s the idea behind Tripster– the awesome service we can’t believe no one invented sooner. Think of Tripster as basically the coolest, most fun baby-sitter/extended-family-member/youth-group/field-trip-organizer ever. Because that’s pretty much how they operate. Bottom line: you need somewhere for the kids to go when school is out for the day, and Tripster has the solution. Read More →

Science Days

catch of the day fish (2)The folks at the Maryland Science Center want you to know that, “Science can happen in a lab, science can happen in space and science can happen in your own backyard!” Of course, to find out how, you’ll need to leave your own backyard for just a minute and hop on down to see what the Science Center is cooking up. August 16th and 17th are the Maryland Science Center’s 9th annual Backyard Science Days this year. They’ll be full of animal encounters and hands-on activities. You can stomp on stomp rockets (what?), race vegetables, build a beetle habitat, make seed bombs and much more.The folks (and beasts) from Scales and Tales will be there all weekend as well featuring live birds of prey and reptiles.

Pub Science at Elliott’s Pour House Tonight

Pub Science

catch of the day fish (2)We love scientists. They’re basically heroes in lab coats. They cure disease, unleash renewable energy, and, you know, brew beer. Sure, it’s not exactly Hopkins-level research that goes into the science of the perfect pint (better to save those resources for slightly more important things) but still, we wouldn’t have beer (let alone a vast array of beers to choose from each day) without the hard work of some hard partying scientists back in the day. So this evening we’re encouraging you to raise a glass while learning a little something about what went into it. Head down to Elliott’s Pour House to learn (and taste) about the science behind beer.
