Welcome to the 2012 Lakeside After-School Science Club (LASSC)!


If you would like information about this year's 2012 sessions, please contact  Dr. Krystyna R. Isaacs


We will have ONE section this year --here is the 2012 LASSC ROSTER  for this year's group. We will meet once/month for 2 hours (3:10-5:00) on a Wednesday in the science labs upstairs at Lakeside Elementary (except for the field trip on Friday, March 23, 2012 to the Legoland SeaLife Aquarium). 


Tshirts will be passed out before the first session. Parent volunteers will be sent to the 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms and teachers notified to 'collect' the students on the first day of science club. Please pack a snack --we'll set aside 5 minutes before the start of science club for a quick snack. 


The fee for the club this year will be $50 and it will cover:


  • all programs from the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science at the school
  • all educational materials/supplies
  • a t-shirt for ALL participants
  • end of Club Year Pizza Party
  • the student cost for the field trip (parents and siblings are extra)


I will post a budget that shows our expenses.  If you have questions about anything, please don't hesitate to email or call me (Krystyna Isaacs).  Everything is documented and available for inspection. 


Click on each link below to get a 'lesson plan' (and instructions on where to buy supplies if you want to do more of the same at home).

CSI-Diamond Heist and Pizza Party



Committee Members:

Science Club Coordinators:    Krystyna Isaacs, Debbie Watson


Every parent needs to sign up for at least one of the session dates listed above, or to volunteer to do one of the 'behind the scenes' tasks, such as:


-Picking up and distributing Tshirts -

-Making name tags (for 4 sessions)-Debbie Watson
-Field trip coordinator: helping with paperwork for siblings and adults reservations for the field trip

-Pizza party coordinator: ordering and bringing pizzas, ice cream, drinks and paper plates and napkins to the school on the last session (delivery around 4PM)-Melissa Hoeldtke

-Check on the Volunteer Background Checks for each parent volunteer


Help at the sessions: We need at least 6 adult volunteers/session--more would be better!

We will have 5-6 different 'stations' and it will be important to have one parent at each station to help the students with doing the experiment and then preparing to discuss it--please plan to come at 2:50P so I can go over the station activity. (Please plan to leave siblings at home on these days.)  


Note: All volunteers need to have background checks.  (if you have one on file for this year at Lakeside, you do not need to submit another one--just let the volunteer in charge of this activity know that your background check is on file).
