Scientists At Work!

On Saturday, two AES students interviewed Mary from Miller Farms Nursery as part of their science fair project. For a science project, and interview with an expert in the field is part of the Evidence of Knowledge on the scoring rubric.

Why is a science fair project such a great learning experience? Science projects involve so much more than science - there is research (library and computer), writing, math, planning skills, and if the student works with a partner, they develop collaboration skills. Preparing a science fair project is also an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or inquiry (also "hands-on" learning).

AES Science Fair Projects due Tuesday, February 26th. Winners will move on to the Humboldt County competition March 18 - 22.

GATE Academy

On Friday, January 18, four AES students participated in the GATE Academy and had a fabulous time! Our four students joined 580 students from 24 schools throughout Humboldt and Del Norte counties at Humboldt State University. They navigated the campus, found their classrooms, and were filled with excitement about learning. One of our students said he had a difficult time sleeping the night before because he was so excited about his class entitled “Escape the Room.” This was his first class of the day and when he returned from lunch Neila Gann, our GATE coordinator, asked about the class. He replied, “It was the best!”
