Jack Anderson, retired professor from Snow College, recently came to SFJHS to show 8th grade students simple machines and other topics in physics. 

Jack encouraged students to make scientific discoveries through hands-on activities.  Students learned about everything from Bernoulli's principle to creating electricity using magnets.  Students made discoveries about reflecting light, pulleys , levers, densities of liquids, Roman arches and had the chance to solve many types of three dimensional puzzles. 

Mr. Bartholomew, as well as other teachers at Spanish Fork Junior High, routinely gives students opportunities to learn in an authentic, hands-on setting.  Another example of excellence at SFJH.
