Virtual SEE

Hooray! It’s time for our 22nd annual Science and Engineering Exposition (SEE). This event features hundreds of student displays demonstrating their science and engineering learning. Ordinarily SEE is a time when we all gather in the gyms and connect in person, but these are extraordinary times. Since we cannot be with one another in person, we have changed SEE to a completely virtual experience. We are excited about the possibilities – never before have students’ projects been on display to an audience that includes the entire world!

Please join us in celebrating our students by visiting the classes linked below. You will find lists of projects, and hear from the students as they walk you through what they have found, in video format.

Beginning on May 7, and running indefinitely, SEE is open to the whole MFS community and beyond. The Expo is virtual and asynchronous, so feel free to visit whenever you have time.

Highlights (and coming attractions) include:

-Take a tour of the insides of the eyes, ears, heart, etc. (8th grade – Anatomy & Physiology)

-Check out a gallery of experiments about botany, ecology, evolution, and genetics. (9th grade – Biology I)

-Explore the world of physics as students ask and answer questions based on found (or student-created) media (CP Physics I, Honors Physics I) and tackle projects of their choice related to electricity and magnetism. (Honors Physics II)

-SEE concepts in Oceanography explained using food!

-Learn about how satellite map data can be used to gather information and propose solutions to problems of environmental health and climate. (Environmental Science)

-How does exercise affect heart and breathing function? What’s the best way to clean your toothbrush? Are plants sensitive to the conditions in which they are grown? What factors affect reaction time? SEE the research. (Biology II and Anatomy and Physiology)
