Polk Middle students prepare for exam with help from PCHS AP Chemistry students

Polk County Middle School students recently put the work of Polk County High School AP Chemistry students to use while preparing for the end-of-grade science exam.

Students in Elisa Flynn’s eighth grade science class used Chemistry review games created last year by Leslie Rhinehart’s AP class at PCHS. The games were put together as part of the final project for the AP students and part of an outreach program that Rhinehart’s students complete each year.

“I want the students to share their chemistry knowledge and the ways they have best learned the concepts,” Rhinehart said.

Flynn’s class used the games to prepare and sharpen their skills in using the Periodic Table.
