With guest teachers showing students how to Scratch, and Mrs. Ward overseeing a race to replicate the DNA-MRNA-protein production of a cell, Day 2 of LSP made students think, smile and work! Today also saw hamburgers pleading not to be eaten, black holes conversing with stars, and Scholars attempting to survive CHAOS with Mr. Diggs, before settling back into building circuits and programming with Mr. Umekubo.
All that thinking, though, made some people hot...so we went swimming, where a few learned about underwater SCUBA-diver code while most of the Scholars lived up the saying, "work hard, play hard:)". After a quick lunch of tacos, and a long stretch on the Meadow, the Scholars got back to work coding, characterizing, replicating and programming until the most popular block - Tinker Time!
Whether it's the choice to learn what they want, or the variety of hands-on activities, it seems that Lucas Scholars can't wait to get to the Tinker Time. Today's options included Scratch, the wind tunnel, Makey Makey, Scribblebots and wearable electronics. With all this excitement and fun-style learning, tomorrow's surprises and activities have got to be awesome!
