ASCENSION EPISCOPAL SCHOOL

Middle School Pendulum Project

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. 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, and 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.”
