Scientist of the week
March 15, 2013
This week’s scientist of the week is Noah in 8th grade. Mrs.
McDowell chose Noah because he has memorized the entire periodic table and
their symbols. He also knows where each one is. The periodic table is very
advanced for an 8th grader. Way to go Noah, keep up the good work!

The Close Calls
Sean, Danny, Ryan, Zane, and Ian
For scientist of the week we asked
Mrs. McDowell since she is the middle school science teacher. When we asked she
hesitated because she has such great students. After all that thinking she
choose Sidney. Mrs. McDowell said,
“I picked Sidney because she is always trying hard to understand science and
she is participating in the science bowl and she is taking her science fair
project to regional’s.” We also
asked Sidney why she thought she deserved this accomplishment and she said, “
because I participate in all the extra science activities.”

In week 3 of publishing class we, The
Close Calls, had scientist of the week to write about. We asked Mrs. McDowell if she had any
recommendations for students to be scientist of the week. Mrs. McDowell said she had to think about but when she thought of who it
should be she said Emily Houser.
She said she picked Emily because she always tries her hardest to do
certain things. Mrs. McDowell also
said she has a good understanding in science in general. We thought that the most interesting
thing that Mrs. McDowell said is that Emily is always willing to participate in
her class which a lot of kids are afraid of doing.

Carina is our “Scientist of the Week.”
She won 1st place overall in sixth grade along Will, but sadly Will
wasn’t able to speak with us. Carina's project idea was to see what the fastest way was
to chill a bottle of water. We asked her “how do you feel about winning 1st?”
she replied “Very HAPPY!” “How did
you come up with this idea?” Carina said “I am tired of waiting for a cold
bottle of water!” Congratulation to all the winners of the Science Fair!

When we asked Mrs. McDowell who she thought the
scientist of the week should be, she responded Tucker Bruinsma. She said that
he is always asking questions about science wanting to know more about
something that is going on in class. She also said that he likes to go home and
research more scientific things on his own. When we interviewed him he said
that he really enjoyed science and that it is his favorite subject. He will be
in the science fair on February 16, 2013 at St. Patrick School. Don't miss it!
