Mr. Bowden is the awesomest teacher I have ever had! One of the best teachers in the Edison school system, his class is always so much fun and exciting! You feel really prepared at the end of the year, and I've learned so much. Passing the NJASK 8 with him is no challenge at all. He may seem a little hard, but don't stress it because trust me, the weather map and rollercoaster is not hard at all. Also, he gives tons of extra credit points.. Have fun, and if you have him for 8th grade, ur lucky

After taking science in high school, I still miss this class. This class was my favorite class in middle school and compared with high school isn't too difficult even though it may seem like you put in a good amount of effort to get that "grade". Enjoy the weather maps, roller coasters and zorbians while you still can! He's one of the best teacher's in Edison's School system.
