At the last faculty meeting, 6th Grade Social Studies teacher, Emily McAllister shared information about Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, from a workshop she attended this past year Some teachers were inspired and implemented this idea in their classes.  7th grade participated in a Google Hangout with Dr. Loeffler during science this week. She took us and three other classes (one from Mumbai) through summiting Mt.Everest. This was a part of an event organized by Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants in honor of International Women and Girls in Science Day tomorrow.
