"A Wave is a disturbance that goes through space and actually transfers that energy from one place to another."
- Ms. S
The Lucas Scholars started the day learning in a physical way what Working Together, Having Fun and Being a Scholar really means. Then they dove into the details of their week, and got to put their hands on the iPads. They joined a community space called Edmodo set up specifically for them to interact and crunched some ideas about digital citizenship, waves and energy.
They proved to Mr. H that waves can indeed be used to communicate, and then tested their very own hypotheses about changing sound waves with iPads and straws.
After that, it was lunch time:)
Then Mr. U showed up with some clay, circuit boards, alligator clips and laptops, and they proceeded to turn themselves into human conductors, playing video games and musical notes with the claps and taps of their hands!
Winding down with some smores and reflection, the Lucas Scholars set their goals for tomorrow and the rest of the week, deciding what they wanted to focus on for their culminating projects and who they wanted to work with.
A lot of work!
A lot of fun!
A lot of learning!
Day One, in the books.
