In our iChallenge Technology class, students were introduced to podcasts. After a hands-on tutorial of the iMac and Garageband, students jumped right into researching several careers in Science. Next, students had to create their own talk show as well as write their own scripts on a storyboard in order to demonstrate what they learned about those careers. Have a look at some of their final products below.
This year's iChallenge theme was Project What? and students explored a variety of science themes ranging from Environmental Science to Space. Have a look at some of our budding scientists in action.
In exploring the world around them, fourth graders studied different habitats, grew their own plant, and got creative with some similes about nature and different animals.
Our 5th graders studied different weather patterns, graphs to document weather patterns, and even created their own volcanoes! In preparation for their news weather broadcast project, this group visited the WHLT studio to meet reporters and get tips for their own project.
