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 Thursday, we finished all the "stand and deliver" lessons in Science 30! Now that does not mean that the learning in Science 30 is over, and it does mean that the kids still do have a lot of work to complete! This week, the Science 30s will develop their arguments for the alternative energy debate on Thursday, and they will begin preparation for their Unit D Final Project. This project will take place of their Unit test, so this project is NOT one to miss!
Reminder, there are only 10 days left of class time!

That's right. There is still TONS of work to do in Science 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. As you can see, students are provided with AMPLE work time in class, in addition to 40 minutes of FLT per day. This week alone, students will be provided with 3 of 4 work periods. Next week, Science 30s have ONLY work periods. Please encourage your student to hand things in on time.
