Impressive academic learning was showcased at A.A. Cole Elementary School’s Project Showcase/Open House, which was complete with science projects ranging from robots to tornadoes to volcanoes.
A.A. Cole student Christian Morrow did his project on HTML coding. He displayed the pages and pages of code that make up the Central Square School District’s website to demonstrate how much coding goes into a website.
Morrow also used software called “Lego Mindstorms” to build his own Lego robot that could perform commands that Morrow coded himself.
Each student’s project featured a “Project Compliments” board where onlookers could comment on what they thought of the project.
Artwork was also displayed throughout the hallways as well as architecture drawings that the students drew of their houses. The blueprints were each drawn to scale, and the students had to find the square footage of each room.
The evening concluded with the ever-famous egg drop science experiment at the back of the school. Principal Michael Smolnik assisted in launching the students’ projects from the school’s rooftop.
