COSI on Wheels – Astounding Astronomy
On April 2nd, our students participated in the COSI on Wheels Astounding Astronomy program. They learned about our solar system and other objects in outer space. A 45 minute interactive assembly was followed by hands-on activities that engaged the students and encouraged the development of Science Process Skills. During the assembly, students explored the sizes and distances between the planets in our solar system, the electromagnetic spectrum, the extreme cold of the outer planets and deep space and how the Earth is the only planet we know of that contains life.
After the assembly, students had the opportunity to work as a team to maneuver a remotely operated vehicle, watch the effect of air pressure on a marshmallow, identify constellations, and have a better understanding of why we experience seasons on Earth.

Science Fair Update
The Academy of St. Adalbert students continue to compete academically with other students in the Cleveland area. Shane Silver-Riskin, who is in our 8th grade, took his science project to the Northeast Ohio Science and Engineering Fair held at Cleveland State University. Over 600 students took part in this competition. Shayne received second place in the Behavioral Science division for which he received a medal, ribbon, and $25. He also received $50 from the American Statistical Association and $50 from the Cleveland Clinic Department of Quantitative Health. Shane was also nominated to compete in Broadcom Masters which is another science competition for students judged to be in the top tier. Way to go, Shane!
Six of our students competed in the Western Reserve District 5 Science Day in Akron. Lauren Chan received a Good rating and Robert Klanac and Kayleigh Hahn were awarded Excellent ratings which is the second highest rating that a project can receive. Alex Psenicka, Alex Kieffer, and Shane Silver-Riskin’s projects received Superior ratings which takes them on to the State competition! We are so proud of our young scientists!
Thank you to Laura Eizember, a dedicated parent volunteer, and Chrystal Blom and Wendy Parente, our middle school math and science teachers, for accompanying our students. Congratulations to all of our Academy of St. Adalbert budding scientists and their families!
The Living Lincoln
Our students were treated to a 45 minute visit with President Abraham Lincoln on February 3, 2014. He spoke of his life from his humble origins in the backwoods of Kentucky through his trying years in the White House. He also answered questions from our students. He would have loved to spend the whole day with us, but he had promised Mrs. Lincoln that he wouldn’t be late for the play they were going to see that evening at Ford’s Theatre. A big THANK YOU to our PTU for funding this wonderful event! Click here to visit the photo gallery of his visit.

This is the sixth year that the Academy has involved all students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade in the Science Fair. While the kindergarteners worked on a project of scientific inquiry as a group, all other students individually formulated a hypothesis and conducted an experiment using the scientific method.
Superior rated students in the middle school grades will attend the 66th Western Reserve District 5 Science Day at The University of Akron on Saturday, March 15, 2014, an event sponsored by The Ohio Academy of Science. The students may then qualify to attend State Science Day at The Ohio State University on May 10, 2014. Students may also qualify to attend the 61st Annual Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair at Cleveland State University on March 11, 2014.
Gelfand Science and Engineering Fair Program
In recognition of the Academy’s all-school science fair, the Gelfeld Science and Engineering Fair Program at Case Western Reserve University has awarded us a $1,000 grant to expand the equipment in our science laboratory.
