During Summer School our science class was given the opportunity to appear on a nationally shown program throughout South Africa as we wished Nelson Mandela, an international icon, a happy 94th birthday. Below is the link.
Headlines: Week of 8/31
- This week we will begin exploring our physics unit that focuses on light and how we see. What is color? Why can I see myself in a mirror and not a brick wall? These phenomena that occur in the world around us have explanations, and it is our role as scientists to search for them. We will begin the week with a Pre-Test prior to starting our experiments, and we will end this week with a quiz on the Science Safety Contract on Friday, Sept. 4th. Please bring ideas and questions to class, as it is through these inquiries that we will be able to investigate the various curiosities of the world. Get ready for an exciting quarter of physics!
- Remember, asking questions and exploring the world around us are the keys to being a successful scientist. I encourage you to ask any questions you may have as we begin our explorations in physics.
- If it is your week to make a post, please do so by 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Everyone should be excited to take part in the scientific discussions chosen by their classmates. There is a lot going on in science, both inside and outside of our classroom. We simply need to continue exploring!
- Please remember to check the homework link regularly. It is updated daily with assignments.
