Eighth graders completed their science project in April, analyzing data to determine if their hypotheses were correct or incorrect. Some of their findings held some interesting surprises! They presented their work in a classroom science fair and took time to … Continue reading
All ages of students spent the month of April, into May, exploring a world too small to see with our naked eyes. Using microscopes that made things anywhere from 30 times larger to 400 times larger than life, students looked … Continue reading

Eighth graders conducted tests on their fellow students and teachers in the testing phase of their three-month long science projects. Frances Chick, our newly hatched chicken, is eagerly awaiting the results of the tests!
Sixth graders spent three months testing a product to see if if lived up to its commercial claims. Here are a few of the fabulous projects that resulted from this inquiry.
Middle Schoolers visited Mesa College to see the exhibit of their work for Canyon Day. Campus Ambassadors gave them tours of the campus.
