As the year winds down, the 7th graders were charged with presenting a “Scientists Fair” to younger students, in which they researched and used their creative skills to “become” a famous scientist or inventor. We saw a rich diversity of people from Steve Jobs & Isaac Newton to Rosalind Franklin & Emilie du Chatelet. Who knew that Hollywood movie star, Hedy Lamarr, was also a first class inventor? A fun time was had by all.
With very few days left, the 6th grade is ending our unit of ocean study by concentrating on just 2 animals – whales and sharks. They were given the opportunity to dissect a small dogfish shark and to study its external and internal anatomy.
As my first year at BSI ends, I would like to say that this has been an educational experience, not only for the students but for me as well. Wishing all of you a very safe and super summer. This is Ron signing off.
