In the STEM time slot in the afternoon, we began 4 weeks of Awesome Science this week. We will go over all the important topics in science, including topics in biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy, all at a level that the students should understand. This week, the topics that we will are going over include photosynthesis, cell division, muscles, digestive system, chemical elements, chemical reactions, energy, work, gravity and projectiles.
We also began science bowl practice this week. Cambridge Institute had the experience of helping Chaparral Middle School in Diamond Bar make the Nationals in science bowl in 2018. We also sponsored and coached the Canyon Hills Junior High School science olympiad team in Chino Hills in 2018. Our goal is to help our students attain great success in science competitions such as the science bowl.

This afternoon, we continued to learn various topics in science and to hold the science bowl practice.
Rehearsing the Broadway musical Oliver! continued to pose enormous challenges for us, for not only do we have to learn the songs, but we also have the remember the spoken lines as well as the choreography! However, we have faith in our wonderful students to do well in the end, and success after seemingly insurmountable challenges will only taste much sweeter. In the mean time, we are still trying to memorize the songs "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself," and "Be Back Soon!"

On Thursday we studied science diligently again and competed in yet another round of Cambridge science bowl. It was a nail-biter until the very end, when one team won the competition at the second tie-breaking question. The students are becoming more and more passionate about science and winning, which is what the Cambridge STEM program is all about.
