A Successful Science Collaboration

Centre Avenue students in Ms. Diana Collins and Ms. Kelly Dowling’s science class participated in a Human Density experiment with Mr. Brian Crowley and Mr. Bryan Palermo’s AP Science classes at the high school. The AP Science classes led a lesson on density to provide background knowledge for students. When finished, a few sixth-grade students were immersed into a drum of water and worked together to find the density of a human based on the water displaced. The elementary students had a wonderful time learning from and getting to know the upperclassmen.
