Exciting Seminars

Do you like reading about ballet? How about mystery? To end off a semester of English, we are presenting seminars on a variety of short stories which encapsulated themes of power and blindness. One of the stories we read was Heather O’Neill’s Swan Lake for Beginners, which details a fictional experiment that cloned a world-renowned ballet dancer.

Rube Goldberg Machines

After a month of planning and designing, we finally presented our Rube Goldberg machines in grade 12 physics. Our machines are designed to perform simple tasks in intricate ways consisting of multiple steps and energy transfers. Examples of tasks our machines performed include cutting hair and ripping toilet paper.

A Shocking Lab

It’s time for another lab! We started our 4th lab on AC current and electromagnetism for grade 12 AP physics this week. As part of the lab, we have to construct circuits and analyze data collected by voltmeters and oscilloscopes. We will write a six-page lab paper based on our findings from this data.

King Lear

From prose and poetry to madness and insanity, many themes prevail in King Lear, which we are studying in grade 12 English class. Arguably one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, we watched different renditions of the play and will be submitting an analysis next week. We will also discuss relevant themes and characters in a fishbowl seminar.
