Please review the link below to our newsletter that details the wrap up steps and dates for students in the coming weeks.
We are now only four weeks away from the Saratoga Future Cities competition. Teams submitted their SIM City reflection that will now be scored by STEM Forward and their essay, which will be scored over the next two weeks. This now leaves our focus on building our city model. Students have visited several facilities to help them understand how we currently address the aging issue and how they might want to represent their ideas on their model. Teams have worked to develop a scale for their model and collected materials to start building the different parts of their model. The model will be due December 15th, so teams can use it to practice their presentation.
After School Work Times
The Future Cities team will be offering after-school work sessions for groups to build their model. There is a significant amount of class time and this is an additional OPTION for groups who need to catch up or enhance their model. This is not a mandatory experience, but many students may want to take advantage of the extra work time. The session dates are listed below and all days run from 2:45 - 3:30pm. Please complete the permission slip [LINKED below], which will cover all sessions, whether a student comes for one or all of the sessions.
