Our 7th graders went from frisbees to airplanes! They learned more about the physics behind flight in the context of airplanes, the role of the different parts of the airplanes, and got to explore many airplanes and a simulator. While the 7th graders were looking at the clouds, the 6th graders went on a space mission to launch a rover on a comet! They had to play multiple roles both in space and at the

Frisbee & Weather Scientists!

Our 6th graders met the science professionals who get to predict the weather at the National Weather Station! They learned about what meteorologists do; the tools they use to predict weather; the importance of considering weather conditions, such as rain storms, into the design of roads, buildings, and houses; as well as how to read data from Mesonet databases and draw isotherms on maps. Meanwhile, you would think our 7th graders were just playing. Well,
We hope the families of our 7th graders benefit from the new knowledge and skills learned by our students this weekend as they wrapped up their Nutrition Module. They not only learned about Nutrient Density applied to different scenarios and how to design a delicious and nutrient dense meal, but they learned some safe cutting techniques and food prep procedures before preparing their own lunch! We look forward to hearing from how they’re helping with
There is not a more fun way to learn about Nutrition that what our 7th graders did this weekend! They even got to create their own healthy snack combos AND ate them! The amount of math concepts they utilized without even noticing was spectacular! Thank you The Sage Colleges Nutrition Department for the great session. This weekend our 6th graders wrapped up a cool module on Space Systems, focused on our Solar System. They got to design
Our 6th graders initiated their Space Systems module that included learning about comets and making them, too! Creating their own rockets to meet specific requirements was nerve-racking, but they stepped up to the plate and were successful! Welcome back RPI Engineering Ambassadors!  Meanwhile, our 7th graders concluded their final Robotics challenge. It is great to see how much they have learned in three short sessions! Thank you Coding&&Community for a great Robotics module And thanks to our partner Clarkson
