Welcome to Middle School Science with Mr. Bessler!
Science in middle school means working cooperatively to solve problems. Students are encouraged to explore the world around them, ask questions, and use experimentation to discover how and why the world works the way it does. Each branch of science is covered, including engineering. Students use the scientific method to investigate problems. They learn to research and write formally. They collect data, interpret results, and make decisions based on evidence. Students are able to connect content to the real world through hands on labs. Their experience culminates in 8th grade when each student comes up with their own problem and uses the knowledge they have gained to complete a science fair project.
