Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently made their own erupting volcanoes.
To learn about science – and have some fun at the same time – students recently built volcanoes by using Legos, baking soda and vinegar.
First, students built their volcanoes out of Legos. Next, they added baking soda on top and then watched them erupt when vinegar was poured on the creations.
The chemical reaction created when the vinegar mixed with the baking soda made a fizzing eruption, similar to a volcano.
At Wings Express, students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.
Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.
There are no Wings Express activities on Wednesdays.
Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.
About 90 students participate in the Wings Express program.
Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.
