I would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Science Olympics on Thursday at the Exhibition of Learning! And congrats to the Chem 20 students who WON IT ALL!! We had so much fun, with over 55 kids competing in the Rube Goldberg Challenge! It really does show the type of learners, trials and success we see everyday in the science classroom!
On Wednesday, we finished all the "stand and deliver" lessons in Chem 30! Now that does not mean that the learning in chem 30 is over, and it does mean that the kids still do have a lot of work to complete! This week, the chem 30s will perform their final equilibrium project and their Unit D test. After that, they will have time to study for their final, and practice with a field test.
Reminder, there are only 10 days left of class time! 10 Days!?!?!

That's right. There is still TONS of work to do in Chem 30. I have noticed a lot of the students have simply taken their own timeline on handing things in. This is extremely frustrating, as the due dates are spread out to allow class time for each project... when kids are not using their time effectively, a lot of work tends to pile up. Please encourage your student to hand things in on time.
