Stempien's Science Sillyness!!
Welcome to Mr. Stempien's 7th Grade Science Class. 7th Grade Science is mainly a project based class, meaning that students conduct several projects throughout the year to demonstrate their understanding of the material. Students will learn the content through a presentation, practice the material through a series of activities (Hands On, Web based, Readings, Webquests, etc.) and then complete a Design Challenge to demonstrate their understanding. We cover topics such as Water, Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Sound and Light and Genetics.
If you have specific questions about 7th Grade Science, please feel free to email Mr. Stempien at any time.
