Middle school Student(s) of the Week By Brandon Stender
Carson Edwards and Blase Sanford of Mrs. Gallagher’s Woodbury Central grade 6 science class were asked to design and create volcanoes of materials from home. Mrs. Gallagher ,a long-time middle school science teacher, chose the two boys to be middle school “Students of the Week” because “they were partners on the project, had their materials ready, and worked hard at constructing the volcano.”
Even though Carson missed some days due to illness, Blase worked hard on his own and finished the volcano on time. When asked about how the project went overall, she explained, “Carson and Blase ended up with a very realistic-looking volcano. "
The volcanoes erupted with the combination of baking soda and vinegar. Some groups used pop and mentos for explosions," and the entire sixth grade had fun with some hands on learning,” Mrs. Gallagher said.
