Welcome!


"This job is a great scientific adventure, but it's also a great human adventure."

Fabiola Gionatti, Higgs Boson physicist







This year
in science we will be answering some big questions. In seventh grade: how can I make new stuff from old stuff? why do some things stop and others keep going? what makes the weather change? and what is going on inside me? In eighth grade: how does food provide my body with energy? how is the earth changing? why do organisms look the way they do? and how will it move?  Our new IQWEST curriculum is based on these driving questions explored through hands on activities, readings, and discussion. You will end this year with new observation, modeling, and problem solving skills, and a knowledge of all the major branches of science.
