Exhibition 2 is coming!

When? March 15th, 6-8 pm.

Science project description:

In science students will design a Rube Goldberg machine that will perform a task of their own choosing. Their machine will be comprised of at least 5 simple machines, one from each type: inclined plane, lever, screw, wheel and axle, wedge, pulley, and will be required to fit inside a cardboard box. Students will outline the engineering design process, describe each of the simple machines and brainstorm several designs to achieve their goal. They will further develop their design, draw a detailed diagram with each of the simple machines labelled, and will list the materials they planned to use. As they build their machines they will keep a daily journal outlining their successes and challenges. Finally, students will reflect on how well their machines meet their purpose, challenges they faced throughout the design and build process, and how their machines could be improved.

Winter Break

We are wrapping up the year by reconnecting with our mentors. 5th graders will be spending part of today meeting with their 8th grade mentors. Both 8th graders and 5th graders are excited to reconnect and renew their friendships from last year.



Celebrating Exhibition.

We are so proud of our students’ work, and we know you are too. Here are a few highlights from the evening.

The Anatomy of an Exhibition outlines the background material the students have learned, and the steps they went through to develop their water filter design, the testing stage and their experimental results and conclusions.

A big thank you to all parents and guardians for your support of your children’s learning through the first exhibition.
