    8th grade science will prove to be a very challenging and engaging class second semester this year! We will be delving into a variety of different sciences and exploring topics that have intrigued and baffled scientists for many years. As we expand our scientific knowledge, we will also continue  to develop our science process skills in preparation for the EOG and high school.  I hope to plan a field trip to a local wetland center in the spring and to a science lab in RTP.  We are going to have a great semester!
