Fall Quarter 2023 - Rockhounds
Where do rocks come from? Where do they go? What are rocks made of? How do we describe and classify rocks? Where can we find rocks on Earth? In this course, students become rockhounds to tackle these questions and more! We investigate the layers of the earth and learn how to read maps using scales and legends. Students observe and manipulate a large variety of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. They describe and then classify them according to their properties. Students observe a sediment cylinder and find the layers and the sediments in the cylinder. Using sand, shells, and rocks,
students make their own sediment. Students dissolve and create crystals and observe different crystal shapes in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. They learn the different ways that fossils can form and create their own simulated fossil. Students will learn about soil and test the properties of soil,
sand, and rocks. They study how water, wind and ice affect rocks and create different landforms. Each day, our busy rockhounds work together in small lab groups to perform experiments and make observations. They maintain a record of our adventures together so they will never forget how to be a rockhound!

Winter Quarter 2024 - From the Inside Out – A Study of the Human Body
This quarter we will study the human body both inside and out. We will learn the names and functions of the body parts, bones, muscles, and organs. We will learn how to keep our bodies healthy and strong. We will make models, test hypotheses, make observations and learn how amazing the human body truly is.

Spring Quarter 2024 - Investigation and Experimentation
Science is fun! This spring, Quest in Science presents Investigation and Experimentation! This exciting hands-on science course is designed to stimulate curiosity and interest in science through exciting investigations and experiments. Students will learn the scientific method and develop their own study of a topic that interests them most. This class will conclude with a complete science fair project created by each student. They will present their project at our brand-new Science Fair!
