At the conclusion of Mod 1 students had the opportunity to share their work with peers during Demo Day. Throughout the day, students traveled throughout the building, participating in a number of learning experiences facilitated by their classmates. From presentations to performances to displays, the day gave Upper Schoolers the opportunity to share their newfound skills and knowledge in authentic ways. Below are just some of the demonstrations of learning that took place during fall Demo Day:
Students in Printmaking shared several of their creations while discussing the printmaking process. Later, they discussed how effective exhibition curation can communicate without words.
Upper Schoolers from The Science of Food provided snacks during their presentations about the scientific elements of various dishes.
Visitors to Spanish I enjoyed bilingual presentations about topics such as television and film before practicing their language skills by playing a game of Jeopardy in Spanish with their peers.
Biology presentations explored a number of topics ranging from vaccines to muscles.
Microscopic Photography students set up digital microscope stations and guided peers as they made microscopic photos of their own.
