Students learning about magnetic fields at the VST Exhibit
Students learning about magnetic fields at the VST Exhibit

NORFOLK – At STEM Day on October 20, Virtual Science Teachers set up an exhibit for Norfolk Public School 5th graders focusing on magnetics.

 

Students had the chance to play with magnets and see how they work. They learned about magnetic field lines and how magnets interact with different materials. The exhibit also taught them how to use a compass. To make it interactive, there was a compass game where students could apply what they had learned.

 

The aim of the Virtual Science Teachers’ booth was to give students a hands-on understanding of magnets and their applications in a straightforward and engaging manner.

 

We’re honored to be part of an event that sparks STEM enthusiasm in the next generation of scientists and engineers!

Langley Air Show STEM Event


May 5-7, 2023

Virtual Science Teachers engaged with hundreds of kids and adults of all ages during the Langley Air Show STEM event.  The Virtual Science Teachers “What is Air” interactive lesson helped students learn about the molecules that make up air.  Then, lots of hands-on activities built on the understanding of molecules in air to help students learn about how differences in air pressure make flight possible.
