Caddo Science Announcements
DEveloping and Using Models
This Caddo Magnet High student is demonstrating how channel proteins work within a cell membrane. Channel proteins are embedded within the cell membrane to allow transport of larger items such as glucose, sodium, and potassium in and out of the cell.
3-8 Science Field Test
The Department recently released an update on the LEAP 2025 Science Field Test assessment calendar. “Students in grades 3 through 8 will take a science field test during the regular testing window but will not take an operational science test for the Spring 2018 administration. The items from these field tests will be used to create the new LEAP 2025 science assessments for grades 3 through 8, to be operational with the Spring 2019 administration.”
Louisiana must build science standards strong in content that prepare students for their future, whether that be post-secondary education in a STEM field, a position in the industrial workforce, or as citizens who influence agricultural, petroleum, and environmental decisions. Louisiana has adopted new science standards.
