The middle school students at Delbarton complete a scientific research or experimental project each year during their second and third term. The main objective is to promote critical thinking and scientific problem solving through experiments using the methods of experiment design, research, and observation. The boys create a scientific question and form a hypothesis, design and complete an experiment to test the hypothesis, make observations, organize data, and analyze results to draw conclusions based on their research. We hope you enjoy all of the hard work of our young scientists.
