Welcome to Junior High Science at St. Brendan!

We will begin the year in 6th grade Earth Science with a study of the structure of the Earth and plate tectonics. In 7th grade Life Science, we will start by exploring the various characteristics of living things, while in 8th grade Physical Science we will study the properties of matter and the structure of the atom. Throughout all middle school science classes, a consistent theme will be the scientific process, including asking questions, designing investigations, and analyzing data ... all in preparation for the St. Brendan Science Fair which will be a focus in the second quarter!
