Science Discovery Day
Science Discovery Day occurs every spring at the R. Roger Rowe School to enlighten students about science fields such as genomics, anatomy, physics, robotics, and rockets. The event is funded by the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation and has been running for the past 15 years with the help of teachers, parent volunteers, and hired professionals. “The students are very engaged and excited about science,” said parent volunteer Ken Buechler, who co-chaired this year’s event. “Their enthusiasm fills the day.” Science Discovery Day took place during school hours and featured various workshops throughout campus. Each workshop focused on a different science field and even provided students with the ability to interact with animals – both real and fake. One of the most exciting features of the science-filled day was the 17-foot robotic giraffe that made a special appearance. The giraffe, which has recently become famous for visiting the White House, was definitely a crowd favorite that day.
