Welcome Future Santanas!

What a great day! Sixth grade students took a tour of Santiago's campus. Led by ASB and PALS, students attended an assembly, played games, and visited various classrooms. Thank you, future Santanas, for spending the morning with us!

Balloon-Powered Cars

Students are building balloon-powered cars using simple materials to learn about motion and forces. Cars are tested on the distance the car can travel, will calculate and graph its speed, and discuss the forces acting on the car that affect its motion.
