Welcome to science at Gateway Middle School!! My name is Jessica Sowa. This is my 14th year at Gateway and my 19th year as a middle school science teacher. I graduated from UNLV in 1997 with a BS in Biology and a minor in chemistry and then in 2000 received my M.Ed. in Secondary Education. Science has always been my passion and I believe in the importance of building a strong foundation in science that my students can use as they move on to higher education. I am looking forward to meeting you! Please read below for more information about the first few days of school.
Welcome to coordinated science for the 2016-2017 school year!! This will be an exciting year of learning and exploration. This class is fast-paced and rigorous, so be ready for the challenge. We will be integrating the 8th grade curriculum with the 9th grade curriculum (including alchemy, physics, space, and climate). You will also have the chance to code and create your own computer simulations to test variables.
Welcome to Science 8 for the 2016-2017 school year!! This class gives you the opportunity to build on all the concepts you have learned up to this point and integrate them into chemistry and physics. You will also have the chance to code and create your own computer simulations to test variables to learn how to think and write like a scientist.
