Beginning this spring the Hilliard City School District will create a task force to study the start times of our schools. We are looking for a cross representation of our community to help explore this complex issue. We will have parents, staff and outside community members involved in this group.
Please fill out this application by February 19, 2016. We will notify those selected by the first week in March. While we hope to include as many people as possible in the panel, we may need to cut the number of participants to keep the group at a reasonable number for productivity.
We invite parents and students to attend a workshop designed to help keep your student safe at home while online. The program is on January 14 at 6:30pm at Hilliard Station 6th Grade School. This class will feature breakout sessions with parents and students grouped separately. You can read more about the class on our One2One webpage.
STEM students had to build a paper roller coaster where they collaborated in groups by planning, measuring, and creating. The coaster’s base had to be three levels high to ensure enough potential energy was achieved. Support columns, beams and elements had to be properly installed in an effort to get the marble from the start point to the end without stopping.
Students used iPad leveling, slow-motion apps and the camera to create videos during the project. Students researched coasters around the world along with how to make each part of the coaster. Students learned about constraints and communication by working in a group setting through the scientific method.
Focus: potential & kinetic energy, forces of gravity, measurement, scientific method, quantitative observations.
Students recently used their iPads to capture pictures around the school and then worked to digitally enhance them. Here are a few examples of some of the cool things they were able to create.
