Learning Expeditions Weekly Newsletter

October 13, 2018

____________________________________________________________________________________________

It was another busy week at Learning Expeditions. Here are just a few of the things we are up to:

  • Students in science studied the structure of DNA. Students created and interpreted their own DNA monuments.
  • Humanities students are continuing with their portion of the Community Sustainability Project, and are at the peer review stage. Students are offering feedback to help fine tune their written and created pieces.
  • Students in math continued to learn about graphing, statistics, and the role these important tools serve in society. Students are collecting data of specific Squamish neighbourhoods in order to assist in the Community Sustainability project.
  • Culinary Arts students are preparing for an all out ‘Cupcake War’ next week. They are refining their recipes to help take home first prize when they are evaluated (deliciously) next week.
  • Social Justice students had the exciting opportunity to join a long time program in Vancouver that helps feed and clothe the homeless in Oppenheimer Park. Students were inspired by the experience, and are planning to bring something similar to Squamish.

We are thrilled to have authentic projects underway, and are continually inspired by our students’ dedication. Stay tuned to see how things are progressing. As always, stop by to check out what’s happening. Have a great weekend,
