WSC students and teachers are eagerly anticipating our annual iInquire Science Immersion Week this month, when our school will be transformed into a science institute with full days of science exploration, investigation, and discovery.  Students will launch rockets, design electronic cars and animal habitats, explore the physics of music, and examine DNA under a microscope.  Once again, we are grateful to our partnership with Urban Advantage, which provides our students access to museum and zoo visits, laboratory experiments and planetarium experiences.  The article linked here provides deeper insight into the benefits of museum-school collaborations, and describes how WSC teacher Mr. Weissman is using Urban Advantage training and materials to build an iInquire Week water study curriculum. https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2018/05/02/museums-are-dabbling-in-teacher-pd-and.html?cmp=eml-enl-eu-news1&M=58472089&U=1122966
