Medication Safety

Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy Students discussed medication safety with our 5th grade students.  The pharmacy students discussed what a pharmacist's job entails then compared and contrasted over the counter medication and prescription medication. Students learned how to accurately measure liquid medications. They showed the 5th graders the difference in the amount of medication administered using a spoon, measuring cup, and syringe. The students learned the most accurate tool to administer medication is a graduated cylinder. Thank you to the Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy Students!  Click on the More+ to see additional pictures of their visit.

Solomon Family STEM Nights

Solomon Elementary conducted Family STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Nights for the students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  The students along with family members were given an engineering challenge and asked to design, build, test, and possibly redesign their creations.  The third graders and their family were asked to build the tallest free standing paper tower out of tape and only one piece of paper.  Fourth graders were given materials and asked to build a vehicle that would travel the furthest using one puff of air.  Fifth graders were given the challenge of designing the tallest tower out of only toothpicks and marshmallows.  Click on the More+ to see the fantastic STEM creations built during the Family STEM nights.

Baby Goats Visit Solomon

Today 3-5 had a special visit from Ashley Raspen of Buttinhead Farms with two of her baby goats. She spent time teaching the students about sustainability and agriculture. In addition, the students had the opportunity to pet and feed the goats as part of this learning opportunity.  We look forward to the goats and Ashley visiting our student scholars again soon!  Click on the More + to see additional pictures of the goats' visit.
