Ascension YouTube: Our middle school Blue Gators were inspired this semester by the influence of STEM and the role that art plays in our the world. Gaining insight from a recent professional development conference, Ascension’s middle school art teacher, Danielle Bacque has chosen to focus on creative problem solving, STEM and community projects for this school year. The wave pendulum project was a collaboration with math teacher, Mrs. Daly, media teacher, Ms. Gros. The middle school media students are assisting with documenting, filming and editing the film you see here, which demonstrate the early steps of the project. In the spring semester, the art and media classes will be calculating the final calibrations and will film with black lights in the media lab. Still have some final calibrations to make before final filming in black light to music. When asked about the project, Ms. Bacque says, “I wanted our students to experience the real world of engineering, successes AND failures through teamwork and creative problem solving this year in art classes. I am excited about how this project is turning out.”
Ascension YouTube: Ascension Episcopal School joined the nation in celebrating Computer Science Week in the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code! This global movement shows kids that computer science is fun, creative and accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background. Students across all three campuses participated in online or off-line activities to learn commands and tasks needed for computers, apps, and websites to function. River Ranch students paired up to "code" each other around a track and used coding fundamentals in their Makerspace. On the downtown campus, the middle school coding club planned a variety of student-led stations for 1st-7th graders. These stations included programmed robots moving through obstacle courses, a Breakout EDU escape game, and an Hour of Code dance party. Upper school students explored a Technology Expo, led by senior Ian Carlisle, with presentations on building a computer, Ethical Hacking, Robotics, and coding their own games! We hope that students will go beyond one hour- to learn for a whole day or a whole week or longer! Visit www.code.org for more information!
