Eighth graders complete Endangered Species Project

Just before Spring Break, eighth graders reached a major milestone in their last year of Middle School: the conclusion of the Endangered Species Project. The project takes place over eight weeks and connects the curriculum in students’ history, English, and science classes. Students combine their research in these areas into a final project presentation.
The top eight presenters gave their presentations to the entire grade in the theater. This year’s finalists were Laura Bache (best overall presentation), Aydyn Wetzstein, Charlotte McCarthy, Trey Owen, Dylan Breier, Liv Gudmundsson, and Catherine Tanner.

Laura Bache had a fantastic experience with the project. “I really enjoyed all of the creativity involved, but at the same time I had to work very hard on the academic aspects of the project. I loved the challenge of inventing a solution to save the Australian sea lion! Presenting my plan for the EcoInvestors (teachers and parents) was my favorite part!”

Congratulations to these students and all our eighth graders on reaching this academic milestone!
