A team of Burnsville High School (BHS) physics students took first place in the milk carton boat race at the 2015 Physics Day at Valleyfair in Shakopee on May 19.
Once again, Burnsville High School students have been selected to attend both the International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, Environment Project Olympiad (ISWEEP) and the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) after presenting their research at the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair.
This year, William Byrne STEM Elementary partnered with Metcalf's Bridges program to provide tutoring in second grade science classes.
Through the partnership, Bridges students have assisted second graders in learning many exciting science lessons. For example, some lessons include fast and slow changes and landforms, the water cycle and measuring with science tools.
Congratulations to the nine Eagle Ridge Junior students qualified to compete at the state Science and Engineering Fair set for March 20-22. They are: (back row, l to r) ninth graders David Ashley and Annie Ashley, seventh grader Marwa Osman, eighth graders Hannah McAleer and Crystal Yiu; (front, l to r) seventh graders Leah Hopperstad, Audra Hakanson, Casey Hennessy and Ryan Crawford.
Passions for running, travel and learning are coming together this winter for Pat Mosey, science teacher at Hidden Valley Elementary School in Savage. A veteran marathon runner, Mosey will soon be running in one of the most inhospitable climates in the world as she participates in the 2015 Antarctica Marathon on March 9.
