Welcome to the
Franklin Elementary PTA Science Club!
All students in grades K-5 are encouraged to join the Science Club, which meets for monthly events on weeknights and occasional off-site daytime events on weekends. The Science Club’s “main event” is the annual Science Fair in the Spring and we hope all Franklin students will participate, regardless of whether they have attended prior events. Students who participate in five (5) or more Science Club events AND enter a project in the Science Fair will be recognized at our Science Club party in May 2020.
Attendance at Science Club meetings/off-site outings rely on parent participation so drop-offs are not allowed.

Designing Space – It IS Rocket Science
Science Club welcomes everyone to 2020 with Rosanne Sachson, Architectural Interior Designer, Solar System Ambassador, JPL~NASA on Thursday, January 16 at 6:30pm in the cafetorium. We will take a trip exploring NASA’s past and future missions: Apollo, MARS 2020, and the Artemis 2024 projects.

2/13/20 Thursday at 6:30 pm in the Franklin Cafetorium
Join us Thursday, February 13 at 6:30pm in the Cafetorium for a special presentation on animation and science by software engineer and Franklin parent, Toby Jones. Walt Disney Animation Studios has always combined science and art to make animated movies, starting with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, all the way through Frozen 2. Science Club is thankful to present a talk with examples on movement and animation that will tie in some of the math and science principles used in the creation of Disney films.
If you attend 5 Science Club events AND participate in the Science Fair, students will receive special recognition at the end of the year!
Science Lab Bulletin Board
We now have a Science Lab bulletin board near the outdoor lunch tables – check it out and let us know if you have anything to add!
