The Miquon Kids’ Research Journal

By Kate Shapero
Welcome to the first ever publication of our new online research journal:

Stuff About Stuff:  The Miquon Kids’ Research Journal

To strengthen their understanding of the scientific method and to practice using scientific habits of mind, fifth and sixth grade students at Miquon designed and implemented their own experiments this spring.  They developed testable questions, planned procedures, collected data during school and at the Art and Science Show, and shared their findings through online presentations.  Please enjoy their work and leave comments and questions for the scientists!
