At Robert J. West Middle School the science classes are in full swing.
Seventh graders conducted a density lab. Taking four liquids including oil, water, corn syrup and dish soap, students had to hypothesize which liquid was the densest and which liquid was the least dense.
Students did an excellent job following the scientific method. After they made a hypothesis, they wrote down their procedure, made observations and drew conclusions.
Many students were surprised that corn syrup was the densest and oil was the least dense. But all students were pleased that they learned something new or that past experiences allowed them to make the correct hypothesis.
