Oct 1, 2014 Science with Ms. Braxton
 
In Ms. Braxton's Science class, students conducted their own science experiments. Above, scholars engaged in an experiment that also incorporated their favorite sport, basketball.

The Task:

8th Grade Science Scholars conducted an investigation seeing if an increase in practice time will chance the amount of successful free throw shots made.

Student's Hypothesis:

If you were to increase the amount of time spent practicing, then you will increase the number of free throw shots you will make because the more time you practice the better your muscles will remember what to do when you go to the free throw line.

 

     

 

     

 

Oct 2, 2014 Titan Times

The Titan Times is produced by the Journalism Studio. Our Scholar-Journalists identify issues that are important to them and to their peers. The article writing process begins with background research on the topic, followed by generating sophisticated questions, and interviewing stakeholders, and culminating in synthesizing all this information into well planned news articles. Topics range from those particular to West Prep, to those of national and even global importance.
