Spotlight on Student Learning: 8th Grade Science Light and Sound Unit
This month, our 8th grade science students explored complex real-word problems through the inquiry lens of scientific and technical innovation.  After studying how light and sound travel, student groups designed a concert venue in close proximity to neighborhoods. They studied the impact of the lights and sounds from the venue on the surrounding populations, and created multiple design alternatives to meet the diverse needs of the community. This project was very student-driven, with teachers facilitating the inquiry process and supporting students’ independent learning.

Dear East Hills School Community:

This week was highlighted by our K-8 Eastover/East Hills Science Fair and Art Exhibit. It was a great night - it was so much fun talking to students about their projects and interests.
