The HOUR of CODE is here!

This week we have been working on the HOUR OF CODE. We must admit that we've actually coded for longer than an hour because the students are having so much fun and learning some high-level concepts. What a great opportunity!

Look who won his certificate:

Keep up the good work class!

The Science Experiment
This morning we did a science experiment. First we needed to get the supplies. We got sharpened pencils and Ziploc bags. Next, we filled the bag with water. Leonardo turned the water on for Mr.Slay. Then Eddie and Angel held the bag of water over Heaven’s head. Last we poked pencils through the bag one by one. Not a drop came out. Mr. Slay put 24 pencils through the bag in all! It was cool. I hope we can do it again.

The future is bright, NO DRUGS in sight!

STEM: Engineering

This week our class focused on the ENGINEERING aspect of STEM. Not only did the kids learn to build using 3-dimensional objects (and shapes), they also learned to find problem-solving insight from their build attempts in order to make future builds more successful.

We call this PERSEVERANCE and GRIT. You can call it LIFE SKILLS.

So what SHAPE do you think it was that the kids found out was the sturdiest? 

Do you think it was a CUBE?!

It turns out the PYRAMIDS are the strongest shape to build with! Good job!
