Follow our work in the science lab on Twitter: @HMMScience

General Parent Information:

  • All students at HMM visit the science lab once per week to conduct science experiments related to what they are learning about in the classroom. 
  • Fifth grade parents:  ask me how you can help your child on the science EOG.
  • If you would like to volunteer in the lab or have an expertise in an area, please come share with us.  I need parent volunteers to help with material making.
  • We always need paper towels and wipes in the lab.
  • Science Olympiad will start after Thanksgiving.  We will be looking for three parent coaches.
  • Talk with your child at home about science and help them by exploring the world around them. ​
