  • Bradley Elementary Hosts Family Science Night

    More than 100 Bradley Elementary School students became scientists for an evening at a Family Science Night hosted by the PTO on Feb. 16. On hand to run the hands-on experiments were Dr. Catherine Swanwick, science teacher at Fauquier High School, and her students. At the various stations the Bradley student-scientists were able to make slime or magnetic slime, use binary coding to make color-coded bead bracelets of their initials, test their engineering skills with marshmallows and toothpicks against “earthquakes,” extract DNA from strawberries and place it into a necklace vial for keeping, and view bird blood, tapeworms and butterfly wings using microscopes.

Essentially the update means content on the site will be more limited. For approximately three months the school division has been making changes to the site in response to an out-of-state complaint filed with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) saying the FCPS site is not compliant with ADA.
