November’s Hike Canceled due to inclement weather
7th and 8th Grade Science Classes:
City Hill's 7th and 8th Grade Science students had an opportunity to participate in an in house field trip to help support our new "NGSS Engineering and Design principles."Jay Mankita who owns "Playful Engineers" became our in house resident design expert for the day. All students were provided with a huge assortment of materials to design and build with. They had so much fun constructing, creating, taking things apart, and rebuilding. In addition, they made great real world connections to the engineering and design process when they broke up into design teams to create their very own Rube Goldberg machines. It was amazing hands on NGSS experience that our students were able to be a part of.
