5th Science

Matter: We continue to work with our M&M experiments. This week we will investigate some very interesting properties of M&Ms. You will come to a conclusion on whether your observations only happen with these candies, or perhaps with some other things.

6th Science

Source to Maouth. We cut our first rivers this week. We will experience meandering and canyon formation first hand. Prepare for a super fun week of intense exploration.

7th Science

Genetics. You will continue to work on your Genetics project. The background research is done, and you start to uncover the ethical and practical consequences of each technology. Let's prepare a great debate.

You will continue your work on the YSC project. This week you will start thinking about one solution for your project and begin to make it a reality. What a great way to "Take over the World!"
