Thousand Oaks students get excited about science

Science Night

Lucas Miller, the Singing Zoologist, entertains the students.

Excitement filled the air November 14 at Thousand Oaks Elementary School, as the teachers hosted an academic night for the students.  At Science Night, parents and students visited stations to learn about science and try out some experiments.

Nimitz STEM Academy representatives and Author Lucas Miller were also at this event. Lucas Miller, the Singing Zoologist, writes and performs songs about animals, their habitats, migration, invasive species, the food chain and many other topics that are relevant to the grade level TEKS. Miller got rave reviews and our students went home singing his science concept songs.

Jenae Mai, Principal of Thousand Oaks Elementary, commented, “The evening was a fun way for families to explore science concepts. The turn-out was fabulous. This year we welcomed guests from STEM Academy at Nimitz to inform our cluster parents and students about this middle school magnet opportunity.”
