Saint Hyacinth Basilica School's ROV Club
Saint Hyacinth Basilica School's ROV Club will be participating in the Shedd Aquarium Midwest MATE ROV Regional on Saturday, April 28th. The students along with their teacher, Ms. Monica Ulanicki, recently made a special visit to Saint Patrick High School's pool to test their remotely operated vehicle, nicknamed the USS Converse. Saint Hyacinth will be the only Catholic elementary school competing.
What are Saint Hyacinth Basilica School students learning?
Students created a Green Building using everyday materials (cardboard, and clay) and discussed the impact green homes have on our planet.
Green Building is a term that describes environmentally friendly construction.
It includes many different aspects of the home, from planting shade trees to save energy to installing water efficient plumbing.
But, while green building is driven by a desire to reduce the environmental impact of your home, its also good for you.
Students investigated musical concepts such as tempo
(how fast or slow the sound), dynamics (how loud or soft the sound), and pitch (how high or low the sound) by making a homemade harmonica
Students and some parents went on to the "5k Go Go Green Walk" sponsored by the Peggy Notebaert Museum.
