Students at Canton Middle had quite a week with science workshops. On Monday, the National Theater for Children, in partnership with Duke Energy, gave a 40 minute presentation on energy efficiency. Flyers went home with all students on how to order a free energy kit. On Tuesday, the Balsam Mountain Preserve presented on ecosystems with a focus on food chains. Several animals were brought along for exhibit, including snakes, owls, and an alligator. Students were given the chance to touch one of the snakes and the alligator at the end of the program. Then on Thursday, Jason Boyer, from Channel 13 News, did a presentation on weather. Canton Middle School was shown on the news later that evening.
