Bridge contest in Ms. White's class.The Jefferson H.S. Science department consists of eight teachers on the traditional schedule. Courses include integrated science (ICS), biology, chemistry, and physics (see the latest State Standards and Frameworks). Students won the cart competition and placed fourth in the tower competition in 1997. The following year students placed 5th in bridge building and 6th in Mission Impossible. In another city-wide contest in 1995, students took first place in building a popsicle stick bridge which held 835 lbs. Students also placed second and fourth in the L.A. County Science Fair in April, 1997.
