High School Science

By Justesen, Nichole

April 08, 2015

The science department has been really busy this year, and I can hardly believe we are already in  4th quarter. This year the science department participated in the SSEP program that allowed students to compete for an opportunity to get their project recognized and sent into space. This project allowed students to design an experiment, do research, and submit their project. The flight experiment was designed to reflect how real science is done. 

Gen Science

The General Science classes has just finished “motion and momentum” series. We are jumping right into work and energy of simple machines. We will finish the year with discussions on planets and solar system. Our final project of the year will be identifying the substance in the snack foods we eat. This will allow students to see how chemistry impacts our everyday life and importance of making smart food choices.

Chemistry

The Chemistry class is just finishing up ionic and covalent bonds and basic balancing equations. The students will get an opportunity to practice balancing equations and applying the knowledge to virtual games and creating power point. Students have started the last major project of the year. Students will do research on an assigned topic and present their findings to the class. The topics deal with states of matter, pressure, and gas laws. Each group will design an experiment for demonstrating their principle.  

Physics

Physics last major project is to create a Rube Goldberg (a complicated invent, contrived to perform a simple operation) device. Their task will be to use their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy, conservation of energy and simple machines to design their own Rube Goldberg device.
