CODING QUEST ARCADE!

 

The grade 6 students are excitingly working on their coding projects! They are eagerly awaiting the showcasing event to present to all of the other grades. Grade 6 parents are welcome to the Coding Quest Arcade on Monday, February 11 to try some of the unique video games! 

 

Two teams are also preparing for the FIRST LEGO League qualification event which is quickly approaching (February 8). 

MPAH SCIENCE PROGRAM

The "My Pals Are Here" International science Program follows an instructional pathway of:

- learning through visual lessons and guided discovery.

- developing concepts and skills in tandem through extensive use of process skills.

- consolidating knowledge and understanding through scaffolded instruction and practice.

The "My Pals Are Here" International Program has been designed to facilitate the teaching of Science through an adaptation of the 5E Instructional Model, which has been widely acclaimed as one of the most effective instructional stages in Science Education.

Engagement

Setting the stage for learning

Exploration

Developing concepts through hands-on learning

Explanation

Communicating and checking understanding

Elaboration

Applying concepts in context, extending understanding

Evaluation

Summing up meaningfully

MATH & CHESS EVENTS

Every year, the grade 3 to 6 students are given the opportunity to participate in various mathematical competitions. These competitions include the Math League Contest, the QAMT Contest, the Mathematica Contests and the Caribou Contest. Dates and times for the mathematical competitions vary from year to year. The Math League Contest is administered to all  grade 4 to 6 students.

 

Students who have played chess before and know the laws of the game are welcome to compete in a chess tournament. Depending on the number of students participating, competitions could be done by grade level or by cycle.

 

ROBOTIC EVENTS

In grades 5 to 6, the students are introduced to the world of Robotics by utilizing the Lego Mindstorms kit. For one to two months, the students get to build a basic bot and learn the visual programming to perform a number of tasks.

 

For grades 5 to 6 students who wish to continue and have an aptitude for robotics, the competitions/events might be of interest. During the school year, teams are formed and preparation begins (lunch and after school) for the robotic competitions from February to May. Depending on the circumstances, select grade 4 students might be able to also participate. Selected grade 3 students also have an opportunity to participate in a robotics project.

 

ROBOTICS SUMMER CAMP

If your looking for a day camp for your child, you might want to consider the ROBOTICS CAMP, especially, if your child loves Lego! This ultimate summer construction lego camp is a fun and creative learning experience. The Robotics Camp has a one-to-one ratio of kit/computer to child. This means that every child gets to use a Lego Mindstorms kit and computer or tablet to themselves.

 

CLASS SCIENCE LIBRARY

If the regular school library does not have the science books that interest you, then check out the science reference section in the classroom!
