At Grier, each of the seven marking periods includes a two-day block of Lab Days. During these days, class periods are double their usual length, with half of the classes meeting on Day 1 and the other half on Day 2. Lab Days are named such because these longer class periods are expressly designed for science classes to complete labs, but all the departments participate. Schoolwide, the longer periods are great for special projects, dramatic re-enactments, presentations, field trips, additional review or practice with skills, and more.
Grier students benefit from a great partnership with Juniata College’s Science in Motion program, in which traveling science educators bring equipment, supplies, and expertise to area schools. Enjoy these science class lab day highlights from the 2017-2018 school year. They include chemistry demonstrations, biology labs, earth and life science activities, and other adventures in science.
