Visiting Salmon Eggs with the GoPro

Here is a clip showing our salmon eggs. They’re in the eyed stage. Still waiting for them to hatch!

Salmon Eggs Have Arrived!!

Our chinook salmon eggs have arrived. Now it’s time to let them hatch and group up and develop in our incubators. Along the way our students will learn about them and engage in many great activities. More to come….

Oregon Native American Groups Audio Slideshows

For the past several weeks our students have been researching, note taking, illustrating, and summarizing information about Oregon’s Native American Groups. With this information, they created in groups audio slideshows using the app 30 Hands to demonstrate what they learned. Below are some photos of the projects in development. Scroll down further and you will find links to the projects!

Testing Solar Ovens on a Sunny Morning!

The fog lifted and sunny skies prevailed this morning, which allowed us to test our solar ovens. Last week students constructed solar ovens using pizzas boxes (Thanks McKenzie Evers for your help with that part!). Our students have been learning about energy transfer, and this activity is great for learning about solar energy, science inquiry, and a few engineering design skills as well. As with the other labs we’ve been conducting, this project used Vernier temperature probes to collect data. Part of that process also involves data analysis to see the big picture. We plan to keep the solar ovens this year and perhaps use them in May or June on a warm day for a follow up activity.
