Naked Egg Experiments at WMS

November 3, 2016

On November 3rd, students in Ms. Kathy Russ' science class at WMS learned how chemical reactions occur by conducting a naked egg experiment.  The students soaked eggs in vinegar to cause the shells to be eaten away.  The eggs became rubberized and even bounced!  Mrs. Russ' students were proud to explain and show off the results of their experiments.

WCSD Superintendent Mrs. Anderson made a visit to Emerald Coast Middle School and stopped by the ECMS 2016 Science Fair led by Mrs. Nancy Parker. 8th Grade students were being interviewed about their projects by volunteers. Winners will be announced later this week.

Elementary students at Paxton School spent Halloween in Egypt. The high school Humanities class created an Egyptian Exhibit that allowed elementary students to meet archeologists who showed them an archeological dig site and taught them about hieroglyphics. The archeologists (tour guides) then led the elementary students through the Temple of Horus, into a pyramid, past a pharaoh’s throne, by the Great Sphinx, and allowed them to peek into King Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus. Those on the tour were able to leave questions for the Humanities students to answer. Submitted by Kalli McMillan.
