This year’s High Ability Learner group has five members, Sam Hindman, Jace Langford, Hunter Letcher, Jake Roberts, and Hannah Wohl. This group’s goal is to extend, challenge, and apply the things they are learning during the school day as well as work on new things at a higher level of thinking. In October, the group did the “Diet Coke and Mentos” experiment. They saw the reaction between the coating on the candy and the contents of a pop bottle. The students further extended the experiment with different sized bottles and amounts. Currently the group is researching rare animals and will eventually create a dichotomous key. Overall, the group is high energy and eager to extend and connect the concepts they are learning!
