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.
