Judson Science Night was an opportunity for its students to show what one of the best Christian schools in Pasadena is focusing on for STEM. All students, grades K-12, displayed their projects for families, friends, and guests. As always, we welcomed alumni who came back to see their alma mater for this fun night. Projects were creative and interesting. The kindergartners gave guests an opportunity to stick their hands in “blubber” to see how it protected them from cold. First and second graders wrote, directed, produced and acted in their own movie entitled Spiderific which is all about spiders.
Third and fourth graders created aquatic creatures which floated down from their classroom ceiling. Fifth and sixth graders, dressed as doctors, presented a journey through the human body. Judson’s junior high students presented their science research projects on a variety of topics from augmented and virtual reality to quantum computing to fracking. High school biology students demonstrated worm dissection, DNA testing, and blood typing. High school physics students had to make bridges using only paper that would hold a hardback textbook. The record bridge held 17 textbooks. The creativity and love for learning that Judson is known for were evident in abundance in their STEM projects on Science Night.
