Science

The Advanced Physical Science is taught by Dave Warner who was a NASA Teacher in Space program candidate from Connecticut.  The class is geared to those who are not only passionate about science, but have a strong math background.  Students investigate all the content that the regular Physical Science class does, but there are more labs that are connected to the content and in greater depth.  The structure of the class greatly mirrors that of a high school science lab course in rigor and expectation.  Students that come back from high school report to us that this class better prepared them for the academic demands of high school.

Grade 7 only (Enrichment)

Humans have been plagued by diseases for all of time, from the recent outbreaks of Ebola in Africa, the Plague of the 1500’s, the ever present and deadly flu, and the fairly new HIV virus. As we travel through human history, students will explore the viral and bacterial outbreaks that have shaped our society (and some other pathogens as well, like worms, protists & fungus).  

For more information, please contact Kelly Stine.

Grade 8 only (Enrichment)

This course focuses on evolution, classification, distribution, behavior, physiology and ecology of mammals. Students will examine and analyze anatomical features of local mammal specimens, explore connections between structure, function and habitat, and analyze the status of endangered mammals worldwide. They will create an oral presentation on an order of the class Mammalia, construct a mammal evolution timeline, and publish artwork on a mammal order or family of choice.

Grade 7 only (Enrichment)

Students will learn the history of space exploration and discover current and future means of space travel and tourism. This will be a project-based enrichment with some research and learning through video presentations.
