MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE AT ALLEN ACADEMY: 

At Allen Academy we believe that science is more than what you know. More importantly, what can we DO with what we know? We collaborate on our learning on working field trips, local and coastal wetlands restoration projects, star parties with our arsenal of telescopes, and much more, as we connect with the world around us and beyond while using our talents to make a difference! All work is done through real-world, relevant experiences, project-based learning,and exams. We work to cultivate confident, creative, problem-solvers of tomorrow.

Interactive Physical, Earth and Space Science - Grade 6

Sixth grade science at Allen Academy focuses on physical sciences with emphasis on energy, motion, chemistry, and the Earth and Solar System. Specific activities will include investigations, projects and opportunities to experiment in the laboratory and design of STEM projects. Students develop skills including: observation, pattern recognition, measurement, data collection, procedures, data analysis, forming conclusions, prediction, and collaboration for creative problem solving. Real world opportunities for interaction and cooperation with experts are integral to the course. Curriculum includes TEKS, NGSS at PreAP/GT level coursework.

Interactive Life Science - Grade 7

Seventh grade science at Allen Academy focuses on life sciences, including biology and ecology, with emphasis on STEM projects including support of life on Earth as well as in space. The student continues to develop scientific skills, including writing laboratory reports and the use of a variety of data analysis methods. The course will include investigations, projects and opportunities to experiment in the laboratory as well as design and implement STEM projects. Focus skills include: observation, pattern recognition, measurement, data collection and data­ analysis, procedures, forming conclusions, prediction, and collaboration for creative problem solving. Real world and citizen scientist opportunities for interaction and cooperation with experts are integral to the course. Curriculum includes TEKS, NGSS at PreAP/GT level coursework. 

Interactive Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy - Grade 8

Eighth grade science at Allen Academy is an integration of  basic physics, chemistry, weather and climate and astronomy with emphasis on Earth, the solar system and the Universe. The student further develops scientific skills, including writing of laboratory reports and academic science research papers, as well as the use of a variety of data analysis methods. The course will include investigations, projects and opportunities to experiment in the laboratory as well as design and implement STEM projects. Focus skills include: observation, pattern recognition, measurement, data collection and data­ analysis, procedures, forming conclusions, prediction, and collaboration for creative problem solving. Real world and citizen science opportunities for interaction and cooperation with experts are integral to the course.
