    I am very excited to be your science teacher this year! This is going to be a year like no other and we are going to navigate it together.  

        Over the course of the year you will learn about atoms and the properties of matter, the fundamentals of chemistry, ecology, genetics and heredity, and physics.  


    We will also work on various projects and experiments throughout the year designed to strengthen your overall science abilities.  


    You need these skills!  Chemically, what are those ingredients in your food?  How and why do elements bond to form larger compounds?  How does the environment drive adaptations in species? What role do humans have in the ecosystem?  How do genes influence your phenotype? Jeez...what's a phenotype?!
