Image result for solar eclipse for kidsWelcome Back Scientists! This month we will have some special activities to safely enjoy the solar eclipse on Aug 21, 2017. The eclipse will begin at 9:45, peak at 10:15, and end at 11:45am. We have solar glasses for everyone and teachers will have several resources to share such as pinhole cameras, live footage from the Path of Totality, and more!!

We've started off 2017 with a bang in the Science Lab and there's more exciting things yet to come!  Middle Schoolers will continue to work on their survey project, forming their claim evidence-reasoning statements and preparing for their debate. Additionally, 6th graders are working on modeling cell components, 7th graders are constructing explanations of photosynthesis, and eighth graders are developing models on genetics.  Our Intermediate Years will develop models of ecosystem dynamics, our Primary Years will plan and design levees, and Early Years will look for patterns in space. It's sure to be exciting times in Science Lab!

Welcome back from Winter Break! We hope your vacation was fun and restful but we know you've been missing science so get ready for an exciting time in Lab.  Middle Schoolers will be continuing to work on their survey project, collecting and analyzing data to support their debate arguments, intermediate years will explore food webs, primary years will attempt to color moths and hide them from the big bad bird in the lab, and early years will be exploring with communicating in code. It's sure to be another exciting week in lab!
