Welcome to an exciting year of science at The Rhoades School! Sixth graders will launch into a year of physics and astronomy.Our educational experiments in the classroom will help prepare the students for a memorable time at Astrocamp in November. The students in seventh grade will dive into biology, the study of life. Our first unit of emphasis will be marine biology. This will enhance our scientific knowledge as we get ready for our week-long class trip to Catalina Island in September. Eighth graders will be engaged in a full year of chemistry. The eighth graders will participate in a diversity of labs and learn many problem-solving skills they can apply to master equations.
