Let’s brainstorm!   You can work with your whole class!  You can work with a buddy!  You can work by yourself!  We can ask older kids from the high school to volunteer to help as mentors.  The possibilities are endless!  If you dream it, it will happen! We will have big party and celebrate our awesomeness as scientific thinkers whatever you choose on June 16!
