Yesterday was Wacky Wednesday!
Alyssa Sinclair

Yesterday was Wacky Wednesday! The kids have been having lots of fun! On Tuesday, the kids had activities such as rock wall climbing, tie-dye, and the mega 100-foot waterslide!!

Things are heating up in the classes too!

The Science of Clay:  They also put the “glaze” that they made out of dirt they collected and sifted on the clay! They also used normal glaze on some other pieces.

Constructive Chaos: The kids began building their bridges, the bridges are being made to hold weight.

You can do the cube: The kids began making. Mosaics out of the rubik’s cube. Some kids are making their names, and some kids were working on the mosaic the class is making together.

3D Printing: the kids continue to design away, and get their designs printed.

Calculus in a week: Holy smokes!: Today they learned the product and quotient rule, and worked as a class to solve problems with the rules.

LEGO Robotics: The kids continue to create. Their robots, and figure out how to work  their robots and the program!

Let’s Make a Scienster-piece!: The kids worked on something today called wax resist painting, and yesterday they made their own paper!

Mr. McDonald decided to jump in on the fun and did an instructor’s passion today: 360 video!

Welcome to Co-Ed Week!
Alyssa Sinclair

Welcome to Co-Ed Week! Lots of exciting things already happening!

The Science of Clay: the kids were given their clay, and the did their notation and began the process of glazing!

Let’s Get Triggy With It: The kids were learning about the Pythagorean Theorem!

Calculus in a Week: Holy Smokes!: The kids started learning about lines, and equations such as y=mx+b.

Put A Spark in it!: The kids began learning about magnetism, and how the magnetic field works with electricity. They also learned about conduction vs. Induction.

LEGO Robotics: The kids started building their robots, and began testing them using the program. They were learning how the program works and how to use it to move their robot.

How healthy is your Forest?: The kids went outside with their Summer Forest Guides and observed the trees, and looked at the characteristics to determine what type of tree it was.

Eclipse Explorations: Today, Mr. Berz began teaching the kids all about the sun! They went outside and looked at the sun (safely, of course).

Just Launch It!: The kids began to build their catapults today!

Moneyball: The kids began to learn basic terms in baseball and in statistics, and how the two combine.

Paper Circuits: The kids began designing what they want to do for their paper circuits: what. It’s going to look light, where it’s going to light up, etc.

Let’s Make a Sciensterpiece!: The kids learned about what pendulum painting is, and began to make pendulums of their own!

It’s the last day of classes
Alyssa Sinclair

It’s the last day of classes in boys week 2! Here’s a glimpse into the classes!

Parts and Pieces: The kids took apart things such as laptops, DVD players, types of lenses, and so much more. The boys are learning about how things are put together and where certain circuits and wires go and what they do.

Paper Circuits: The boys were given a small traffic light, and were given a wire to hook to it to activate the lights.

To Infinity and Beyond: The boys learned about e, which is a used to replace a long number is physics and math formulas

Just Launch it!: The kids tested their catapults, and fixed any issues they may have had. They also launched tennis balls from the big catapult outside!

Let’s Make a Sciensterpiece!: The boys were making geometric art, a lot of which looked like illusions!

Moneyball: The boys have been learning how to statistically improve at gaga ball for the last day and a half. They have been changing their strategies and techniques to see what statistically works better for them.

Brave New Worlds: The boys were making and painting paper mâché eggs!


 

IT’S WACKY WEDNESDAY!
Alyssa Sinclair

IT’S WACKY WEDNESDAY! Lots of fun stuff happening here today!!

Constructive Chaos: The boys teamed up to make bridges and see how many cement bricks it could hold! The one I saw held all of them, and it was made out of a hot flue stick that the boys built around.

Calculus in a week: Holy Smokes!: The boys learned about product rule in calculus, solved some problems together, and had a speed round of problems on the board!

Eclipse: The boys took trip through the solar system, using a red ball as th sun and traveling the solar system through scale. Once they got to “Earth”, The boys looked at the sun with welder’s glass, and discovered the sun and the ball where the same size from where they were standing!

You can do the cube: The boys are working on their Rubik mosaics today! I saw a few completed of the boys names. Very impressive!

Lego Robotics: The boys are working on their robots and figuring out the issues that the robots have, and how to solve them.

Paper Circuits: Some of the boys got their motors running! Super cool stuff, can’t wait to see what they do with it!

3D Printing: The boys are finishing up their designs, and beginning to print. So far, I’ve seen a UFO, a part of Thor’s hammer, a pyramid, and a ton of other cool designs!

Clay: The boys made a historic slip for their clay that will help it to hold water. Super cool and interesting!


 

Boys Week 2!
Alyssa Sinclair

Welcome to Day One of classes in Boys Week 2!

Lots of fun times today!

During the break time in between classes, the boys head outside and play gaga ball, play on the swings, play soccer, and just take advantage of nature!

Clay: The boys learned about the science of clay and different glazes.

Constructive Chaos: The boys learned new vocabulary and different types of failures

Programming: The boys learned about the program and began brainstorming on the game they were going to make

Get Triggy with it: The boys began learning basic areas of trigonometry, such as the Pythagorean theorem.

Calculus in a week: Holy Smokes!: The boys learned about things like sine, cosine, and tangent, and did some graphing!

You can do the cube: The boys began learning the science behind the cube, such as how many possible combinations a Rubik’s cube has.

Eclipse: The boys began learning about the moon, how big it is compared to the earth, and how it rotates.

LEGO Robotics: The boys began building their robots and brainstorming and which parts to use, when to use them, and where to use them.

Parts and Pieces: The boys are going to be taking apart working laptops! They will turn them on and off, take them apart, and try to put them back together and see if they work again!

Lift Off: the boys began learning the “basics of rocketry”

Moneyball: The boys began experimenting with gathering statistics by throwing magnetic darts and collecting the data.

Paper Circuits: The boys began sketching their designs that they will make out of wire.

Let’s Make a Scienster-piece: The boys began learning about pendulum painting and how to build their base.

This week is going to be a very eventful one full of lots of experiments, fun, and of course, learning new things!
