This year Elrod Elementary will sponsor a Young Astronaut Chapter for 4th and 5th Graders. The Young Astronaut Council was formed by the White House in 1984 to help kids experience the fun and adventure of learning. Today it is the largest youth aerospace organization in the world. Young Astronauts Club is a STEM based space themed club for our 5th graders to learn all about the wonders of space.
There is a fee required as part of this district sponsored club due at the first meeting.
The Young Astronauts Chapter is open to any fourth and fifth graders who are interested in science. A total of twenty, fourth and fifth graders will be randomly selected from those students who turn in an interest form for participation in the program.
The curriculum for the Young Astronauts Meetings this year is SPACE. Students will participate in science activities that are centered around aeronautics. We will do a special astronomy-related activity in preparation for the District stargazing.
