Enrichment Opportunities at RMS
Academic Support and/or Lunch...or at home with support!
School Buzz-- Academic Support AND Lunch
This is our uplifting school video series. We aim to issue an episode every week or two.
The Playlist of all our past videos is available here.
What makes a game fun? What makes you want to keep on playing? Work with teammates to develop and market a game. This can be a board game or a videogame. Students will have access to GameStarMechanic to learn videogame design, if they wish.
We meet about twice a month at Academic Support.
Learn techniques of debating and prepare for afternoon debates. We have three official debates over the course of the year: one is just for RMS students and the other is with students from JP Case and East Amwell.
We meet about twice a month at Lunch and Academic Support. Students can also come and research here any time.
Model UN/ Youth and Government--7th and 8th grade only--Academic Support AND Lunch
Explore a country and its diplomatic stances and then simulate a UN convention...or find a way to improve the state and create a bill to propose at legislature. Both of these activities are in conjunction with the YMCA and involve a trip (with some expenses). Model UN takes place in PA over Martin Luther King Jr Day weekend, and Youth & Government takes place in the spring in Trenton.
For Word Lovers
Mostly On Your Own Time...with support as needed
Future Cities Engineering
Imagine what a city's Public Spaces will be like in 100 years; how will city planners solve future problems? Work with a team to write an essay, design a Sim City model, create a 3D model (at home), and prepare a 5 minute presentation for an event Martin Luther King Jr Day weekend at Rutgers.
