Summer Camp begins!

Summer Camp started this week and the BUG Students are back and better then ever! We've had a busy week so far and everyone is still starting to know the new faces in the group. 

The boys started the week at the Waterfront Kitchen with Chef Jerry. They made two different kinds of BBQ sauce, South Carolina Style and St. Louis sweet cherry. Both were delicious.

Tuesday was the first day the BUGS had a stand at the Hamilton Farmers Market. Two of our students will be working the booth each week from 4PM until 8PM. The Market was a great success with our Seed Balls and Pesto both selling out!

Wednesday we went raspberry picking at Larri Land Farms. We picked a total of about 10 pounds of berries and ate just as many there!

Our Solar System has stuff in it!

What does our Solar System look like? Is the sun a planet or a star? How many stars are there? What is a star exactly? These are just some of the questions we asked during our Journey into the Stars lessons. NASA has some great materials we used and though we just touched the surface of these amazing scientific entities, we had fun drawing what we thought our Solar System looks like.
