When P.S. 249, the Caton School, in Brooklyn, New York, saw that attendance on Fridays was consistently low, the staff came up with Super Science Fridays—an immersive science day when hands-on activities and cross-curricular investigations would give students an incentive to come to school and help get them reinvigorated and excited about learning. Students wear lab coats and think like scientists, and throughout the day the regular blocks for math, writing, and reading all relate to the science content they are studying. As a result, attendance and engagement improved—and so did science learning.
