Science Labs by Ms. Lerenman
Nothing makes science come alive like labs, model-making, and experiments. KEY 7th graders partake in various labs above, with their weekly volunteers Mr. Stern and Ms. Strickland. Mr. Stern and Ms. Strickland love seeing students really be able to get it and apply their knowledge through these hands on activities. The volunteers are amazed with the level of cooperation and caring that students show to one another, making sure that each person in the group gets a chance to participate and engage. The volunteers lend an aspect of social capital but they also get to be impressed with the level of cultural capital that the students have acquired from their various field trips and higher-order thinking classes.
