EXPO 2022 has come to a close and we couldn’t be more proud of our students. Last year, EXPO was held via Zoom, so it was refreshing to have families back on campus to participate in person, once again. This year, we held EXPO over the course of the whole week. Below are just a few highlights. For a video about the EXPO process, click here.
In the photo above, Elodie, who is studying Hippos, demonstrates the incredible pressure (pounds per inch) of a hippo’s bite, by crushing a spaghetti squash in a vice she made.
This next photo shows Robby, studying the Brain, using sensors on his hand to demonstrate to Arlo, his classmate, how electric impulses travel through the body and control motor skills.
Brayden, who is studying Water Slides, built a model to demonstrate how water is pumped through various heights, using a pump mechanism that he designed. He told us a lot of testing went into the process!
Vivian, studying Psychology, showed us a study they did of child actors and the impact of industry pressures, corresponding mental health issues, and the outcomes on their lives as they got older.
Our students’ displays and bright smiles were exemplary of the incredible amount of work that goes into each project that makes up the holistic expression of their learning for EXPO. With models, prototypes, charts, graphics, written displays, specimens, mobiles, music, and more, families were able to dive into the complex array of topics and ask questions, guided by the materials at each display.
