9/11 Remembrance

Science Academies of New York (SANY) honors and remembers those whose lives were tragically changed 20 years ago today, and thanks the first responders. United we stand!

Saturday, September 11th, 2021It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago to this day, our lives tragically changed. Many of us know where we were when we heard the news that day. Some of us heard it on the radio, or watched the news that morning. While others may have heard the news from a coworker or a family member or friend. A day in history that we will never forget.

Today, we mourn those who lost their lives, and grieve with those who lost friends and family. We would like to take this moment to thank all of our brave first responders, and those who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. United we stand.

Teachers Prepare for the 2021 - 2022 School Year

SASCCS Personal Development Training 2021 - 2022

Monday, August 23rd, 2021It’s hard to believe that the first day of school is next week! To prepare for the upcoming 2021 - 2022 school year, Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school teachers, faculty and staff participated in a week-long Personal Development Training.

Atoms welcomed guest presenters, Laurie Hoover and Cheryl Wells from Empower Federal Credit Union who shared information about their Dollar Dog program. During their session, they discussed the importance of students saving money at an early age. Atoms who currently participate in this program can bring deposits directly to the school and Laurie will take them back to the bank for them!

In addition to guest speakers, teachers also participated in a variety of hands-on team building exercises and activities. Needless to say, they are eager and excited to see the Atoms next week for the first day of school!

Enjoy the rest of your summer Atoms, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Happy Independence Day, Atoms!

Sunday, July 4th, 2021—From our family to yours, we wish all of our Atoms a very happy, healthy and safe Independence Day! Below are some fun facts about the 4th of July.

  • Every July 4th, descendants of the signers of the Declaration of Independence tap the Liberty Bell 13 times in honor of the original 13 colonies.
  • Americans typically eat 150 million hot dogs on Independence Day, “enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times,” according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.
  • The first July 4th celebration took place at the White House on 1801, hosted by Thomas Jefferson.
  • Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest is held annually on July 4th. In 2018, champion Joey Chestnut ate 74 hot dogs with buns in just 10 minutes.

Things Get a little Slimy in the 2nd Grade

Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship 2nd grade Atoms created their own slime using glue, baking soda and a little saline solution.

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021Dare we say that things got a little ‘slimy’ at Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school when the Atoms were left with glue, baking soda and a little saline solution to create their very own slime. For their hands-on, minds-on science experiment, students were tasked with using each of those ingredients to make the perfect slime that had great texture, elasticity, was flexible and of course looked cool - just like the Atoms! Fun, laughter and excitement were had by all with this classic DIY science experiment.

Sunday, June 20th, 2021— 'Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.' - Anne Geddes

Future Architects Design their Dream Homes

Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school 5th grade Atoms participate in a hands-on, minds-on STEM activity where they design their dream home.

Monday, June 14th, 2021Our house, in the middle of street! Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship 5th grade Atoms in Mr. Giangiobbe's class put on their construction hats, grabbed some blueprints, their rulers, straight edges, compasses and calculators for their hands-on, minds-on activity of designing their dream house!

From mansions, to houses, to duplexes and everything in between, these future architects used their mathematical skills of area, perimeter, and spatial graphing and built out and designed their dream home. No home is ever complete without figuring out the budget and how much you would like to spend when it comes to fixing up a home or even designing your own home. The Atoms put their financial skills to work, as well, when they were drawing and designing their homes.

This awesome STEM assignment is one the students will remember for always!
