HEBRON | Hebron Middle School held its annual 2nd-Grade Science Night with the help of the middle school science teachers, second-grade teachers, parents, and members of the National Junior Honor Society. About 75 students attended this event. This night consisted of four different rooms, where students learned about our galaxy, physical health, problem solving, and science labs.

The students were divided into four groups. Each group traveled to each of the four rooms, spending about 25 minutes in each. One of the rooms was the digital planetarium where second-graders learned about constellations in our galaxy. After learning about space, they watched a roller coaster video in the dome.

Students also entered the Crazy Lab room, which included a Egg in the Bottle lab, a can-crushing lab and rainbow milk, and then they turned off the lights and the room then transformed into a glow-in-the-dark room with numerous black-lights set up. Once the lights went out the students experimented with glow-in-the-dark slime, elephant toothpaste, giant bubbles they could stand in and a Mentos fountain.

Next was the PE Room. Here, students were split into four smaller groups. Each group had an obstacle course to travel through. Upon completion, the students learned about heart rate and the benefits of physical fitness. The students got to go through the obstacle course many times.

Last, the Mystery Room was filled with all sorts of fun stuff. Kids got to see large cockroaches, touch a Van de Graaf generator, use science tools, and create their own marshmallow catapults.
