STEAM class with Mrs. Singleton started off with a bang this first week of school with 5th grade studying density. Our first day we did an experiment with density in water and discovered some very interesting results. Our second day we did an acrylic pour and tried to create "cells" with silicone. These pop out of the painting due to the density of silicone versus paint. Check out this amazing work!!
