6th Grade Science Class

Ms. Brooks' 6th grade science class is finishing up their energy unit with thermal energy. After learning about thermal energy transfer, they were split up into groups where they researched and constructed solar ovens. Each group was expected to discover what type of solar oven would work best to cook a food of their choice and design it with given supplies.

Unfortunately this unit happened to fall in the middle of winter, so a big thank you to John W. for allowing the students to use the green house to host their experiments!
