Congratulations to nine students who have been accepted into the 2019-2020 Advanced Science Program for Independent Research and Engineering (ASPIRE) program, which is supported by the Advanced Mathematics and Science Study Program fund. This post highlights Harry Amadeo '20 and Alex Lim '21. Both students are reaching for the stars (literally) as they work on designing and building things that fly. For Harry, it's rockets and rocket fuel and for Alex, it's a drone.
Grade 6 students examined controversial environmental topics and utilized elements they had practiced in their history and english classes. The preparation with their CEA - claim, evidence, analysis, is related to their job roles in English book club reflections and the inner/outer circle is similar to a style used in a recent History class debate.
Wafa & Joe are both working to develop new and improved treatments. Wafa is trying to find a better way to fight cancer, and Joe is trying to identify new antibiotics that would be useful for treating multi-resistant bacteria and tuberculosis.
The Lower School Library was transformed into an interactive carnival complete with a Lego ferris wheel, games, and prizes as Grade 3 students presented their Motion Carnival on Wednesday afternoon. Students have been studying the properties of forces and motion and to further their understanding of the concepts, they created carnival games that demonstrate these properties and also explored engineering concepts through the design of each game.
