Subject: Science - Grade(s): 8th Grade

"The important thing is to never stop questioning" -Albert Einstein

As a science, physics addresses the underlying forces and laws that make everything happen. In my class, students will learn how to probe the deepest and most meaningful questions that have been asked by using the scientific method and by tapping into their own curiosity.

Students will focus on developing the skills necessary to becoming good scientists and well-rounded individuals, such as critical thinking, developing scientific experiments and procedures, asking questions, and collaborating with their peers in a constructive and respectful manner. The ultimate goal of this class is to give the students the tools that they'll need to have in order to properly explore the complex world around them, so that they can continue learning not only in the classroom but in their daily lives and future careers.
