Earlier this morning, we chanced upon a fascinating opportunity to witness high-level STEM+Arts learning. Grade 10 students presented unit projects for an interdisciplinary unit on Magnetic Machines.
A joint learning project between Grade 10 Physics, Computer Science, and Design Tech - students were required to create their own unique machine using their understanding of magnetics.
As part of the overall process, students also had to create a website showcasing their creation, as well as the applicable scientific and design principles. Schematic drawings and 3d graphic models were included, and many projects had an application focus aligning with U.N. Sustainability Goals.
Today, students presented their projects and processes to their peers and younger science classes. As with so many of the programs at TCIS, learning is shared to encourage deeper understanding and to inspire younger classes.
This was such an incredible and comprehensive display of learning and creativity. We were sincerely impressed with the projects on display today and the quality of interdisciplinary STEM+Arts learning.
