Session 4: Building Towers

In science, the scholars were building towers today. With a lot of determintion, many of them managed to keep it straight. After that, they built another tower and learned about trusses. A triangle is the stongest shape to build bridges and towers! Later, they experimented with different weights to see how strong their structure was. Even though it was quite chilly, the scholars are all happy to be here.20180929_11441920181013_093052

Synergy!

During the first half of science, the kids had to learn together as team to solve a puzzle. They had different pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and had to put them together for one final picture. There were two groups to tackle this challenge. One had to complete the puzzle in under 45 seconds, but the other group had to solve it in under 30 seconds. They learned how to communicate as a team, which will surely help them as they continue in STEM.

Kinetic and Potential Energy

Today in 6th grade they continued to work on kinetic and potential energy. They had a experiment of getting a toothpick, with metal wrapped around a small part of it, to balance on different parts of their face and hands. They were so happy trying to get the toothpick to balance and eventually everyone got it. After this they worked on multiplication with big numbers,in math, and they were very impressive.
