Let me introduce you to a fine group of inventors! These lovely ladies represented State Street Elementary School at the Invention Convention, held on May 14, at Beaver Falls School District. Alyssa Fodor; Janna Rusnak; Maddy Shaffer; Gianna Georgakis; Marena Baker, and Lana Holcomb are all 5th graders, and had some clever ideas to patent and market! The girls worked diligently on their display boards and they all looked great!
A HUGE SHOUT OUT TO OUR FIRST PLACE WINNER......Marena Baker! Her invention was called the BEDBLASTER, a new idea to combine sleeping in the comfort of your bed and having all of your technology charged in the morning!
Congratulations to all of these girls, especially Marena, who could give Thomas Edison a run for his money!

scrabble tournament2The Ambridge Gifted and Enrichment department hosted a Scrabble Tournament on March 14 at State Street School.
Students from school districts across Beaver County gathered to expand their vocabulary, while meeting new friends. They challenged their opponents, while creating words that would give them high points!
These 80 students were posing good questions that even challenged some of our teachers! Is ‘putted’ really a word?!
It was an enjoyable day to have lots of fun while learning!
We challenge YOU to play against any of these students and with their excellent skills, they just may win!

A group of 33 enrichment students from our three elementary schools enjoyed a day out to learn all about Space Exploration.

On February 19, they attended a CLO show entitled BEYOND THE MOON, that was performed at Rochester High School, and sponsored by the GIFTED CONSORTIUM of Beaver County.

The students learned about famous astronauts and their discovery of what is beyond our planet Earth.

This show, with its educational scope, as well as the professional stage entertainment, left the students wanting more!

The elementary students in grade 3, 4, and 5 enjoyed this educational trip, and wrapped up their exciting day by visiting McDonald’s in Baden for lunch. Mrs. Petukauskas and Mr. Price were proud of the student’s behavior, and look forward to our next venture in the enrichment program!

InventionlandInventionland2

 

On February 21, fifth grade students at State Street Elementary enjoyed a free field trip to Inventionland in Pittsburgh.  Inventionland is a 60,000 square foot immersive work environment.   The facility inspires creativity, promotes innovation and fosters education.  Students were able to tour uniquely-themed sets, where specialized designers, artists, illustrators, videographers, strategists, seamstresses and fabricators work.  The themed sets include a shipwrecked pirate ship, faux cave, treehouse, pet shack, giant shoe, cupcake kitchen and giant robot.

The field trip was free for students thanks to a grant from Target Field Trips and Scholarship America.  This field trip grant was awarded to STEAM teacher Mrs. Darroch.The grant was in the amount of $700 and will also be used to purchase invention kits for our 5thgrade STEAM students.
