A weekly highlight of the programs of Plumas Unified School District and supported by the County Office of Education.
Another year, come and gone. The end of every school year marks a momentous moment of academic and personal achievement that comes with sentimental reflection and gratitude for the things that have gone and the things that will come. As with every year, this moment marks a turn of the tassel and a progression for every class. This year’s 8th graders are now finally in high school, the current freshman said goodbye to being freshies, sophomores stepped that much closer to graduation, juniors are about to enter their last year of high school, and another class of seniors walked across the stage, accepted their diplomas, and is about to embark on a new journey.

There is a science to everything - even adventure. Science is - “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” Adventure encompasses a plethora of activities, which up here in Plumas County can include boating, rock climbing, and skiing, among many others. So, what is the science of adventure? It is the study of the scientific principles that make up and interact with the outdoor activities that we love. Published 6-13-18
