Subject or Grade:
7th Grade Honors Science / STEM
Seventh grade science is an exciting journey of discovering our ever changing planet through the study of plate tectonics, geology, fossils, geologic time, ecology, and the exciting field of astronomy! The students are engaged in many activities and labs to enhance their learning.
The STEM class provides students with multiple opportunities to explore the basic principles of engineering through many hands-on activities.The students will incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math to design and build basic models. There is an emphasis on electrical circuits and the different forms of renewable energy (solar, wind, and water).
I have been teaching for 10 years at Highland Junior High. I also have a degree in microbiology and MAT in biological sciences. I LOVE science and technology and all the exciting discoveries and innovations these fields add to our lives. :)
