Rosarian Academy Students are Science Maniacs Thanks to Partnership with South Florida Science Center

The Lower School in concert with the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium celebrated gains in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math with Science Mania Day on  Friday, May 18. Over 20 different STEAM activities were set up for kindergarten-through-fourth grade students, including interactive experiments supporting the study of Earth, Life, and Physical Sciences as well as building and robotics projects. The Rosarian Science Lab was turned into an airboat simulation ride through the Florida Everglades, and there was a student showcase of science collections, reports and projects.

Rosarian Academy, founded in 1925, educates students from early childhood through eighth grade and offers an exceptionally strong academic program enriched by athletics, visual and performing arts, and community service opportunities. STEM, coding, art, drama, music theory, and Spanish classes begin in kindergarten.
