Chem Team

Back to Bonding…Image result for bonding chemistryLet’s meet Tuesday morning to compare two common types of chemical bonds – ionic and covalent. We also need some volunteers to demonstrate experiments on chemistry of monsters and cyanotyping at the end of the week. Supplies are here and ready to go.

Skeletal System Study

Here are some options for science research related to the skeletal system.

  • fractures and repair
  • bone cancer
  • osteoporosis
  • endoskeletons, exoskeletons
  • cartilaginous skeletons
  • skeletal disorders
  • limb replacement
  • joints and movement
  • carpal and tarsal tunnel syndrome

SCIence FRIday

We will also learn the names of some of the bones and identify them on the skeleton. Lots of options for further investigation to earn a badge or put an entry into your portfolio.
