Our seventh graders are amazing inventors! They spent three months brainstorming problems and coming up with a solution in the form of an invention. Then they researched the patents of different, related products, made and tested a prototype, and created … Continue reading
Eighth graders conducted tests on their fellow students and teachers in the testing phase of their three-month long science projects. Frances Chick, our newly hatched chicken, is eagerly awaiting the results of the tests!
Students in all grades have been studying the science of sound — acoustics — and learning how sound waves are produced by vibrations. They experimented seeing, feeling and hearing sound waves. Then they created musical instruments and explained how they … Continue reading
Middle School Students followed the engineering process to invent and create machines that can sort gum balls according to size. First they identified a problem — to sort gumballs by size — then they brainstormed solutions, designed, built and tested … Continue reading
At the end of our Simple Machines Unit, students made Rube Goldberg Machines — impossibly complicated machines made from many simple machines, with a very simple purpose.
6th Graders worked on their Truth in Advertising product testing Projects and 7th Graders worked from January – March to create inventions for the Invention Convention. Here are the amazing results!
1st – 5th graders made circuit bugs, while Middle Schoolers explored circuits using our new FOSS spring board electronics kits.
