ChemClub Established at SCS
I am excited to announce that Schenevus has established an American Chemical Society ChemClub program. At the first meeting, we had more than 25 students, 9-12, show interest in be part of SCS's newest club. The internationally recognized club invites, motivates and encourages high school students to explore the many ways that chemistry connects to their world. At our second meeting we will be choosing representatives and establishing committees responsible for publicity, school events and lab activities. Watch for our posters and blogs!
The start of the new year is approaching quickly and I am getting excited to start the new year! Please make sure you check out the rest of this site for information about the courses you will be taking and some other interesting information that you might like to read.
Make sure you visit my blog for updates!
Here is the Current Schedule:

If you can't make it, see me to arrange a different time.
Just back from a very exciting week at Cornell, I learned so much and can't wait to share some of the activities with the Living Environment classes. See more pictures under the "Other Interesting Stuff" tab.

Hi Parents! Recently, I added a new section to the this blog. It is called "DIY Science". There you will find fun and easy science experiments and activities you can do with your kids. Each activity includes a list of materials, directions, questions to think about and/or extra activities you can do. For additional fun, post a comment or send me a picture of you and your child(ren) conducting one of the experiments and I will include the picture on the page’s slideshow.
NSTA Conference in Boston
I had great time in Boston! I learned and saw a lot of really cool things. Everyone I met was really friendly and fun to talk to. I picked up a few great resources to bring back to the classroom. I even had my picture taken with an echidna!
Saw This and Had to Post It!
My name is JoAnn Fredette. I am a teacher at Schenevus Central School in Schenevus NY. I teach high school Living Environment, Chemistry and AP Biology. I have created this site to be a resource for my students, their parents and other science educators. Here and there I will also post about things that I am up to outside of school too.
