Aspire. Learn. Mentor. Achieve. Science (ALMA) Academy

2019-2020

Week 1: 

What is S.T.E.M.? Why is STEM important? Working in STEM! 

Our scholars built their own bottle rocket to reinforce their understanding of Science. Technology. Engineering. & Mathematics, and why STEM is important.

Week 2 : 

Animal (Eukaryotic) and Bacteria (Prokaryotic) Cells 

Scholars swabbed different areas of the school with a cotton swab in order to see the levels of bacteria in these common areas. In addition, they also mounted onions onto a slide to observe under the microscope.

Did you know?

Scientist found 1,458 new species of bacteria in the bellybutton of a human being
