  • Summer School Students Conduct Weather Balloon Launch

    by
    The summer collaboration among RCSD, RIT and MCC in the Summer STEM Institute is helping to support P-TECH ROCHESTER, a new program for District students. Classroom highlights were on display during the launch of a second science experiment. Dozens of students launched a weather balloon that flew over the region for a little more than two hours. Upon the launch, a separate search team was deployed to retrieve the results. The visit to the Genesee Village and Country Museum provided an important lesson in history and science; one of many valuable lessons students have learned throughout the summer program. The visit also provided insight about early balloon flight and the Civil War Balloon Corps.

    Girls and boys at School No. 23 have been busy. The "Girls on the Run" team participated in the GOTR 5K run at MCC. They spent several weeks training and learning skills to be great people. On their training run a week before the race, the girls ran through the neighborhood with garbage bags and cleaned up trash on the street. Neighbors thanked them along the way! School 23 also showcased its first Boys' Running Club. With the help of parents and staff members, the boys trained for several weeks so they could run in Lilac Festival 5K.  The boys hosted a car wash to raise funds for their entry fees. They also received a great deal of help from neighbors, the PTA, Fleet Feet and the organizers of the Lilac 5K.
