Thank you to our junior high science teacher, Mrs. Yeager, for guiding and teaching our students through this semester-long project. Project based learning is a best practice that helps students learn in multiple curricular subjects using high level questioning and critical thinking skills.

Our youngest Middle School students did a phenomenal job in their research and presentations! The following students were awarded placement for their experiments and presentation as well as overall score:
First Place: Jake Schneider
