My thematic components examine our cycle of Stewardship. These include the cover letter, group initiative, kick-off and culminating activity. My academic components examine the theme of Independence/Interdependence. This includes all the academic content in physical science studying forces and motions and also the Socratic Seminar, The Making of a Scientist, by Richard Feynman. The science content is aligned with the Ohio State Learning Standards for Science.
