7th Grade Science

The seventh grade has been very busy in science class with many projects going on right now. First of all, we have just finished our science research. Each student chooses a topic of interest and spent the last few months doing a detailed search for facts and information. This work is now going to be used to create displays for our Science Research Night on February 11th. We are also finishing up our study of life science with a dynamic experiment, Feel the Beat. It involves an investigation into pulse rate and the body's response to outside stimuli. Lastly, we are beginning a new unit on ecology with the arrival of our salmon eggs. Over the next few months, we will raise these eggs into fry that will be released into the Salmon River in Colchester.
