Welcome to 7B Science.

 

The  goal of the 7th grade science teachers is to share their love of science to instill the mind set of being a life long learner.

To promote this mindset, seventh grade science students will continue to develop SKILLS IN scientific inquiry and engineering, chemistry and life science.
