Cumulative XP:

5th Science

Weather: This is a project work week. You already chose which of the four projects to complete and it is time to "buckle down" and do it. Make sure you read the requirements often and check your work against the rubrics. Where do you find those? Well on the project webpage of course.

6th Science

Dirt on Soil. This is a project work week for you. You will put final touches on your Dirt on soil project and rehearse your presentations. What did your case tell you? Are your suggestions feasible? Check your work!

7th Science

Genetics. We start the week off by studying sex-linked genes. We continue our studies by covering epigenetics (make sure you have your monsters handy) and pedigrees. Once our lessons are done, we begin our work on the Genetics Debate project. So much fun is awaiting you!

8th Engineering
You will be introduced to the YSC project. This long term individual project will have you working on a new technology that improves the health and well-being of humanity. The first step for you, which is what you will work on this week, is to fully understand what is being required of you. That is what the quote at the top of this page is all about. I will expect quality work from you, even when nobody is looking :)
