Fifth graders enjoy Science Day at Harlingen South  

Fifth graders across the district were invited to the Harlingen High School South gym to observe science in action for the 12th Annual Science Day.

For the first part of the event, students sat and watched a science experiment demo led by Harlingen South teachers and high school students that included fire, liquid nitrogen, force, resistance, and bubbles.

This year, the experience was more interactive, and there was a second part to the event that allowed students to participate in discovery stations where they interacted with high school students and learned more about different topics and matters related to science.

“This is a magnet that I am holding, and it is collecting little metal pieces,” Wilson Elementary fifth-grader Evelyn Delgado said as she stood at one of the discovery stations. “In the other gym, we learned that fire can make helium fly. It is all very exciting, and it is surprising at the same time!”

This annual event helps to prepare fifth grade students for their science STAAR test.
