Welcome back… I hope everyone enjoyed their break. I just wish we could see some snow!!! Here are a couple updates on what is happening in Middle School Science/PTLW.
6th Grade- We are wrapping up our chemistry unit with a couple of project based learning experiences. One is building a device that uses a chemical process to change thermal energy. In PLTW we are just beginning our robotics unit. Students will spend the rest of the year building and coding robots to help solve problems.
7th/8th Grade- We are ending our unit on genetics. Students will soon be researching different aspects of genetic engineering. In PLTW we are working on electronics. Students are learning about the different parts and types of circuits. They will also be soldering circuits and using snap circuits to design systems to help solve problems.
