Heating & Cooling
In this unit we explore the effects of heating and cooling on matter, expansion and contraction, phase changes, intro to the atom and cover class procedures and safety expectations.
In this unit we explore metric units of measurement, learn how to measure and calculate lengths, mass and volume and have our annual Metric Olympics!
Density & Buoyancy
In this unit we will expand on our knowledge of mass and volume to determine how things float and sink... LIKE SUBMARINES!
Human Growth & Development
In this unit we explore the human body, puberty, digestion, reproduction, diet and nutrition, HIV, and perform a frog dissection.
In this unit we will explore the atom, molecules, chemical reactions and properties of matter. Oh, and of course we will blow things up!
In this mini unit we will explore the functions and parts of an eye. This exciting unit concludes with an eye dissection!
In this unit we will explore the properties of waves, sound, SONAR, music, the electromagnetic spectrum and dissect eyeballs!
In this unit we will use mechanics, mathematics and physics to program robots to do a series of desired "behaviors". We will also become familiar with software and technology that will be utilized in future units.
