DIY Circuits

The grade 9 students studied current electricity this week. After learning about voltage, current, and Ohm’s law, they performed a lab to study these concepts in more detail, in which they constructed different circuits, recorded readings on voltmeters and ammeters, and gained a better understanding of everyday electronics.

Conditional Coding

The grade 10 ICS class learned about coding loops and conditional statements in Java. They will use their knowledge in an upcoming “Blast Off” project, where they will animate a rocket ship taking off and flying through space. Next week, the students will be researching and presenting potential careers related to computer science.

When Bikes Pollute

The grade 9 geography class studied concept maps. They analyzed how the extraction, production, distribution, and disposal of everyday products such as printers and bicycles affected the environment, and created concept maps which depicted their findings. Who knew that bikes were so un-eco-friendly?
