Mr. Hart

Welcome to 8th Grade Science

Hello! My name is Mr. Hart and I am from Chicago, IL. This is my first year teaching at Porter. I taught 6th through 8th Grade Science in Alexandria, KY the past two years. I graduated from Northern Kentucky University with my B.A. in History and Electronic Media and Broadcasting and my M.A. in Teaching. I moved to Virginia to not only teach at Porter but also to start my PhD in International Education at George Mason University.

I am very excited to start the school year and get to know all of you! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

What to Expect:


8th grade science is about the concepts of chemistry and physics. We as a class will be investigating the nature of universal laws and theories. The course is heavy with vocabulary concepts and laboratory practices. The primary factor within physical science is the atom and its interactions with energy. Students will also learn the concepts of: gravity, temperature, pressure, light, sound, thermodynamics, acceleration, forces, Newton's Laws, and a host of other interesting and universal concepts that are life changing insights for a student’s scientific education and high school success.
