Please note that in an effort to focus and clarify the process for the individual students and facilitate less stress on children and families as well as promote a student's independence in project completion, we have chosen 10 (per grade) curricularly-related topics from which your child can choose in Grades 3-5. In Grades 6-8 only 6 students will be allowed to conduct scientific studies, and they (in groups of 3) will be mentored by either Mr. Y-G or Ms. Clayton throughout their process.
