The Grammy Museum
While at the Grammy Museum, scholars had the opportunity to learn about the technology that goes into creating music. They also had the opportunity to engineer their own song. Scholars also learned about the technogly used to produce numerous series on MTV.
Six Flags Over STEAM
This week, scholars and staff put their engineering hats on to build roller coasters. The goal was to build a roller coaster with at least 1 loop and 1 hill or a roller coaster with 2 hills. Each group was given a marble. Their roller coaster was considered functional when the marble was able to travel the roller coaster from start to finish with no assistance.
This activity also incorporated elements from our math lesson last week.
Scholars used clippings from old magazines and newspapers to create a self-portrait of positive affirmations.
The Skin I'm In
Scholars had the opportunity to act out their favorite scene from our chosen novel, The Skin I'm In. Ms. Maya has taken this novel and fostered a love for reading in our scholars that is undeniable.
