With the current CPS budget situation, our kids are relying on WatersToday more than ever for the “extras” that make our school great. This year WatersToday was able to fund coach stipends and sports equipment, and some pretty cool supplies for the arts, technology and science programs. This is in addition to funding 100% of the Waters Ecology Program, 50% of the Music program and recess and lunch supervision through Right-at-School so that our teachers have more time for their lesson preparation.
Read more about the awesome supplies Waters Today was able to purchase for our Fine Arts, Technology and Science Teams for the 2016/17 school year, we think you’ll find that there is a little something for everyone.
Learning is evolving. Students can give their Sphero robot orders with visual blocks representing code and immediately see the connection between the program they created and how the guts of Sphero work and react. Students can easily learn programming, complete hands-on activities, and share your creations with imagination as their only limit. These robots foster a love of robotics, coding, and STEAM principles… all through play.
KID PX 3D
Our younger students can enjoy drawing and painting creativity to tell their stories and adventures on screen. Using a variety of animated costumes, kids can star in their own digital documentaries. Kids can easily create a 60-second animated short story all their own.
MICROSCOPES AND BEAKERS
Our middle grade students were in desperate need of new microscopes and beakers to enhance their science learnings!
HUMAN ANATOMY MODEL
Students can manipulate the inner workings of the human body as they build the models, gaining a deeper understanding of how organs and systems interact.
FOSS WEATHER AND WATER KITS
A good understanding of meteorology as an earth science isn't complete without an introduction to the physics and chemistry that drive weather. Understanding weather is more than reading a thermometer and recording air-pressure measurements. Students first learn about atoms and molecules, air masses, wind, and heat transfer. Then they investigate phase chance and meteorology before looking more closely at the water cycle, ocean currents, and climate.
