During Copiague School District’s elementary summer school program, students in Carly Lopez’s class participated in a hands-on STEM activity. The students learned about tornadoes and then created their own. They enjoyed using different variables to discover the best way to make a tornado in a jar. The class favorite was the tornado made with glitter, which represented the debris that a tornado picks up along its path of destruction.
