College Credit Plus Geology

     Debbie Smith’s CC+ Geology class is growing crystals.  Her class of Junior and Senior students are participating in a competition to grow the best crystals.  The kids are working in groups of 4 and started the process with aluminum potassium sulfate (alum) and water.  They have 6 weeks to try and grow the largest single crystal as well as the clearest crystal.  The graded lab project could also earn the students bonus points.  CC+ classes are a way for students to earn not only high school credits but college level credit too!  This gives these students an big advantage when starting their college careers.
