The best way to learn science is to do science. Middle school science classrooms are infusing new technologies (i.e. Interactive Textbooks, Promethean boards, cooperative Promethean Tables) with active, hands-on investigations while introducing secondary science content. The corresponding New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards are addressed in a variety of ways so that our students can master age appropriate concepts while experiencing the processes of scientific exploration.
