The Science of Candle Making

As part of the STEM component as Farmers Market season upon us, students are learning how to make candles. Here we see taper candles being made.

Science is incorporated in the physical and chemical changes that occur with blocks of wax being melted down to a liquid and then back to a solid as it forms layers of wax on the wicks. They are very careful when dealing with the very hot temperatures. The final products will be showcased and sold at the BUGS Farmers Market on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The address is 802 South Caroline street and we hope to see you there!

For a recent B.U.G.S. incentive field trip we went to the Paterson Park Ice rink. Students got the chance to test out their skating abilities. For some this was the first time being on ice. Everyone had a great time even while falling occasionally.

About ready to go home

When the skating came to an end everyone was all smiles and ready to get outside into the warm sun.

Button Up Round 2!

The Bridgers had such a great time working with Button Up that Ms. Pam and Ms. Emily agreed to come visit the Spiders and teach the boys about starting a business and making buttons. Some of these works of art will even be for sale at the BUGS Farmers Market so you can show off your BUGS pride all year long.
