Computer Lab

Welcome to Media!

We are continuing to work with project based learning. Grade 8 students are city planners, creating a plan to convert a city from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Their choices must produce enough energy to power the city but come in under budget. Grade 7 students are researching autonomous vehicles and writing persuasive essays arguing for or against their use. Grade 5 working on forces and energy and will be using stem activities from Scholastic and Nascar. Grade 4 is learning to use the Google Suite.
