Boat races were held at the city pool. Thank you to the citizens and city of Herington for the support and providing a great facility. Great job to all the competing teams. You did great! Many boats completed their heats this year. That says a lot about your abilities and team work. Check the photo gallery.
From General Science 3rd hour, the Terminator constructed by Chase and Bailey, piloted by Chase, took first overall.
From General Science 4th hour, the USS Ship Happens constructed by Taylor, Mardi, Ben, and Falon, piloted by Falon, took 2nd overall.
We are off and running. All classes are engaged in learning about the scientific method, the SI system of units and prefixes, safety, and more. We will shortly turn to the geosphere in Earth and Space Science, the atom in Chemistry, and General Science will also turn to matter and energy. All classes took diagnostic tests as well as the marshmallow challenge.
A team in 5th period Chemistry had the tallest tower overall. Kudos to Team RMS.
