Kasperson Week 14

 In Forensics, Psychology, Science - 7th Grade, Science - 8th Grade

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone is having a great week!


Science Fair/ Stem-fest Updates:

Today junior high students are signing up for their topic choices for either science fair or stem-fest. 


Here is a link to the website that gives all necessary information for the Stem-fest/ Science fair. 


A helpful note: Most of these projects will be completed outside of class. They are not designed to be time-consuming or expensive. There will be a few days closer to the deadline in which students can wrap up their projects during class. For any questions, feel free to contact Michelle Tischer at mtischer@santancs.com

Psychology: Students have been learning about sleep stages, disturbances, and theories on why we dream! Next week they will learn about various drugs that can alter states of consciousness.
