On Tuesday, September 20, NCS fifth graders had the opportunity to appear on television as
guests on WAVY-TV (10)'s "Kid Talk" which airs on Saturday mornings. Led by an educational specialist from Nauticus, our students were introduced to experiments involving combustion, force & movement. Not only did students observe some of the very scientific principles they are currently studying (Newton's Laws, etc) in our science lab, they also had the opportunity to go "behind the scenes" to see how a television program is produced.
"This was a fantastic opportunity to merge science and the communication arts and the students really enjoyed themselves," said Barbara Hall, head of the lower school. "Our students find these experiences even more enriching because they build on their first hand work in our science lab and in our broadcast program where lower school students report NCS news."
The show will air this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and will be available online at wavy.com within a week or so after the airing.
