A group of young scientists tried to help Santa Claus on his latest excursion from the North Pole.
Students in grades Pre-K-3 investigated electricity, designed a parachute for Santa Claus to land in those hard-to-reach places and explored Santa’s magic milk during Honeybee Haven’s Sixth Annual Holiday Camp at North Live Oak Elementary on Dec. 14.
For snacks, campers designed a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) gingerbread structure, completing a wonderful morning filled with a lot of science as well as some Christmas-time magic.
The holiday minicamp is an extension of the Honeybee Haven Science Discovery Camp, a week-long summer camp that is open annually to children entering grades Pre-K through third.
North Live Oak Elementary teachers Karen Parrino and Danielle Fennell have run the camps for six years in addition to the 4-5 Saturday minicamps throughout the school year.
