The 8th grade recently completed a 2 1/2 day science exploration. After brainstorming about and narrowing down careers that involve science, students investigated what it might take to become a meteorologist or archaeologist. Students investigated courses that might be required, how and where one might complete an internship and which branches of science were involved. Students then completed several experiments (finding relative humidity, creating hail, determining gender from bones, etc.) pertaining to their field and experienced the application of math in these fields. The experience culminated with student presentations and an archaeology simulation.

“Seeing” and “Living” in the world of the child takes keen observation and some inventing on the part of the parent. Come learn how to better accommodate your child to his or her environment through the design of your home, activities and furniture. Experience the child’s world in a way you may never have thought of doing.
Parents of Infants and Toddlers are encouraged to attend. Feel free to bring a friend!
