Today was the first 7th grade Tri-sci meeting of the year and about 35 girls showed up, which I thought was awesome. I hope everyone had fun and sticks with it. Our three main topics this year are forensic science, engineering, and marine biology. Make sure you get your permission slips tomorrow if you want to go on the first field trip to the Corning museum of glass. Only the first 40 7th and 8th graders that turn it in can go.


Today in class we watched 2 short videos that hopefully made everyone think for a moment. It's easy to take things for granted in our "culture of excess" but also to think that our lives sometimes stink, without looking at the whole picture. For me, personally, these two videos left a huge impact. They can be viewed here and here.

I was just wondering,if you go on a trip for the forensic science area.
Are you going to need a adult or two to go and help out?
