Urbas - Science Week of Feb 25 - March 3

Students this week have been working on mining and minerals. They worked as "miners" in order to try and determine whether an area was rich enough in mineral deposits to be profitable. The picture on the left shows a team probing a sample area and mapping the percentage of deposits in relation to land area.

Next week we are starting ISAT testing and students will be working on experiments based on Color and Light.

There is also an extra credit option available for Saturday Feb. 26. Information can be found on my BLOG home page under Extra Credit. All students need to do is go to the program and bring back proof of participation.
