Rockets and Newton's Laws!
This marks the fourth year in a row LVCP Physics students have launched rockets, the perfect chance to study Newton's Laws of Motion and make real world connections and memories that will last a lifetime! Each student builds and launches their own Estees rocket, collect data and then apply the laws of physics to calculate the flight of the rocket. Students present their findings during an oral presentation in front of their peers.
Students created imaginary chemical companies. They were told to hire motivated and knowledgeable chemists for their imaginary company and were responsible every step of hiring process. Students wrote out the job descriptions, created interview questions, tests, and practiced for interviews. They have videotaped their interviews!
Students learn about Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins and Nucleic Acids and how the body uses these organic compounds for fuel!
Students learn the structures and how scientists detect these compounds in Labs.
Students generate menus and perform calculations where fuel from Carbon bonds is converted into energy as calories that meet the specific daily requirements of 15%protein, 30% fat and 55% Carbohydrate. Additionally students chose nutritionally challenged subjects and designed specific menus designed for their specific need.
Students created a giant 7 foot by 10 foot Periodic Table of Elements. Each student worked on an element and illustrated a “card” with all the Periodic Table information on it. They also created atomic timeline posters showing the history of various scientists’ contributions leading to discoveries of the atom.
This year we hope even more classes will join in a true celebration of project-based learning and participate with Ms. Ward Kelly's art classes in the cardboard challenge! See the one sheet below for more information and enjoy our photos from last year's students who participated in art, creative writing, robotics, architecture, dance and physical education classes.
