Creative Learning Alliance Newsletter for April 2023

Picking Up STEAM

The Creative Learning Alliance’s had a wonderful time exploring weather at their March lab event! Carl Junction Senior and MOSOCAPS student Klohe Burk developed all of the activities as part of a passion project. And attendees got to learn about how rain falls from clouds, how the EF scales works, how to make lightning in your mouth, and got to take home their own tornado in a jar. Thank you, Klohe!
