The Curiosity Cube heads to Brookhollow
October 22, 2019
Brookhollow Elementary has an exciting learning opportunity for fourth and fifth graders coming to campus on Friday, Oct. 25. The Curiosity Cube will be here all day and they have special hands-on science experiments planned for the students to learn from.
The Curiosity Cube is a retrofitted shipping container that has been transformed into a mobile classroom and science lab run by MilliporeSigma, a leading life science company committed to science, technology, engineering and math education programs.
This special event will be for fourth and fifth graders ONLY and due to space and time constraints is not open to the public. A schedule has been predetermined to ensure each fourth- and fifth-grade class gets an opportunity to participate in the three experiments The Curiosity Cube will feature for our students.
The Curiosity Cube program began in 2017 as a platform to increase access to science education in elementary and middle schools for grades 4-8. During the 2017-18 school year, more than 44,000 lessons were held in more than 190 communities. This year’s lessons revolve around the Periodic Table of Elements to celebrate its 150th anniversary.
