Hands-On Lab Science Returns to Middle School

Science labs are back in full swing in Middle School! 

With the help of some fogged-up lab glasses, students were delighted to develop their practical science skills through hands-on learning.

"Science in the Middle School was challenging last year as none of our classes were in the science rooms, and indeed were held out of multiple different rooms on a daily basis," said middle school science teacher Nic Ryba. "This meant that although students had many opportunities for problem-solving, digital simulations, simple labs and paper projects, the 'wet' labs that are equipment-heavy did not take place."

Now, the classes are back to full chemistry investigations. This week, students focused on prediction, observation and data recording through buoyancy and forensic science activities.
