"Anyone who hasn't made a mistake has never tried anything new" - Albert Einstein

8th Grade Science is an inquiry-oriented and integrated course which focuses on Scientific Inquiry and Process, Engineering Practices, Earth-Space, Physics, Chemistry and Energy.  In addition to addressing portions of physical science content from outgoing California State Standards, this year will include the new California-adopted Next Generation Science Standards which includes the engineering, life and Earth-space component.

Throughout the school year, we will conduct weekly scientific experiments that will enhance our critical thinking and problem solving skills.  In science, a curious mind and asking questions is always encouraged, as is finding ways to search for answers to your questions. When you enter my class you become a scientist, so please bring your curiosity, dedication and initiative with you!
