The News Herald – Randal Yakey

“The robot’s performance was part of Florida State University Panama City’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Institute showcase. STEM is designed to encourage area K-12 students to pursue those academic disciplines….Amelia Tarkington, 11, Renascence School International in Panama City, had a display of a corn research program. “I’m testing genetically modified corn acidity against other corn,” Amelia said. “Some researchers think acidity can be a marker for cancer.'”(more)

Eggs, eggs, everywhere!

Outside the Box – Honey Nixon

The Panama City Renaissance School was flooded with pastel baskets, colored eggs and bunny ears during the school’s egg – hunt festivities this year. Staff and parents worked hard to make sure the prize-filled eggs were carefully hidden before each class began their hunt. Excitement filled the air as students raced to fill their baskets. The children had great fun opening their eggs to reveal the small toys and treats inside. A special thanks to all the parents who worked hard to make the day a success and Ms. Richard for the photo coverage!

Students make dog toys for local animal shelter

Outside the Box – Deborah Durbin

On March 10, Enrichment program students made toys for a local animal shelter. Using colorful strips of fleece, the students braided dog tug toys. As part of the activity, older students were paired with younger students to teach the basics of braiding. Having an extra set of hands also helped to make the braids tight, ensuring a good, strong toy that will last for hours of puppy playtime.  Special recognition to the families who donated the fleece for this activity. Thanks for another great program, Ms. Spradley.

Ms. Xia, Ms. Zhang, and Ms Xia’s husband taught the students how sound and vibration are connected. The entire lesson was conducted completely in Mandarin Chinese. The students listened to a musical performance on traditional Chinese instruments and sang songs to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Afterward, the students and families were invited to have dinner in the restaurant and the students were encouraged to order in Chinese! A special thanks to the Wu family for generously hosting our students at China Coast Restaurant.
