Grade 1: Global Climate Change
Students adopt a penguin nest during the breeding season in Ross Island, Antarctica. They follow the penguins through the breeding season as they observe how global climate change makes an impact on adelie penguins as they adjust to changes in their habitat brought by warming temperatures. Students skype with research scientist Jean Pennycook in Ross Island to discuss the project and the observations that they have made throughout the season.
Grades 4 & 5: Civil Engineering
Reed Brockman and Michelle Jose, two civil engineers from the STEM Education Network, offered fourth and fifth graders an afternoon of hands-on engineering activities. Students made a model of the Zakim Bridge using PVC pipes, FedEx boxes, rope, and carabineers. They also built towers out of balloons, designed cities of the future, and created catapults to launch ping-pong balls at a target.
On the Roseway Schooner field trip, students participate in hands-on activities where they learn about simple machines, buoyancy, and lift. In the photo below, the students are exploring the concept of mechanical advantage.
For six weeks, all sixth grade students engage in an interdisciplinary project based on the ocean. They formulate and research a driving question of their choice and work with peers to create a presentation that they share with their school community.
