Test tubes, hypotheses, and safety goggles have filled Newcastle High School once again, as the science department’s summer school session kicked off on June 15.
“Our summer school entails a lot of field science. Since we’re with small groups that we can have for extended days, we can do more outdoor activities that we could not do during the school year. This year, we have 14 kids attending,” science instructor James Stith declared.
Contrary to popular belief, summer school is not just for those who fell a little behind during the school year. The science teachers have made their best effort to make their section of summer school not only a time for students who need to catch up, but also for expanding their knowledge.
