Ms. Elizabeth Nisbet « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Welcome! I am very excited for this school year and am looking forward to getting to know all of my students.

Physical Science students will be learning about chemistry (atoms, molecules, and chemical reactions) and physics (motion, forces, energy, waves, electricity) this year.

Engineering students will be learning about the different fields of engineering by performing hands-on activities which will enhance their problem-solving abilities.  Topics include aerospace engineering, green engineering, CAD, robotics, civil engineering, mechanical engineering.  Senior Engineering student will finish their year with a senior engineering project of their choosing.
