It’s never too early to discover STEM. FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through LEGO!

Guided by adult coaches and FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, students build models using LEGO® Education WeDo and create Show Me posters to present what they learned. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through a real-world challenge – to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination. This year's challenge: BOOMTOWN BUILD

Note that the FLL Jr. Team is expected to participate in an Expo on April 4th at the VBC.

Middle School Life Science II - second semester

Calendar Current session started Jan 8, 2020 at 9 am, runs for 17 weeks

This is the second semester of a full year course.

This two-part course will meet for one hour a week for two semesters and is designed to serve as a supplement to a middle school general science or life science course for students in grades 6th - 8th. Although this course will involve some instruction, it will primarily serve as a laboratory experience to supplement at-home studies of course material. Emphasis will be given to note taking, introductory scientific writing, principles of experimentation, and data analysis/interpretation. The two-part course schedule is designed to follow the “Life Science For Middle School” textbook available from CK-12, although it will be appropriate for any course covering the topics found in this text. Course topics will include the following: cells, organelles, and organ systems; biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems; heredity; and natural selection.

This tuition for Middle School Life Science II includes a $50 lab materials fee.
