Science Program

8th Grade Science Overview:  Students will study interdisciplinary science concepts structured around the theme “scope and scale.” Over the course of the year, they will study physics (forces, motion, energy, and waves); chemistry (atoms, molecules, and chemical reactions); astronomy (stars, planets, and outer space); and engineering design. Throughout all units, students will practice scientific inquiry by planning and conducting experiments, as well as producing written lab reports.
