My name is Moses Kaber. I am the Science Specialist

You’ll see that my classroom is full of projects, the result of students using science and engineering together to shape the world around them. Here we learn how to break things down into understandable parts, and then use those parts to create something new, or to solve a problem. What interests and motivates each student is different, and I’m always looking at how their existing passions can be incorporated into the subjects that we are investigating.

In the science classroom you will see students using all available resources to understand and change the world. As an inquiry-based classroom students learn that it is important not only to look at different answers to your questions, but to also look at different ways of asking the question.

Students using science and engineering together to shape the world around them.

Understanding Systems, Inquiry, and Application

Using a collaborative inquiry-based approach we expand and refine student’s thoughts and ideas. Not just teaching information, but rather how to find and process information from existing sources, and from the world around them, as well as how to plan out projects and foresee what information will be needed from an engineering standpoint.

 

Computer science

Through the use of physical projects, students are introduced to concepts that can be applied in easily accessible Code.org activities that smoothly transition into actual computer programing.

 

Engineering

Every student is given time to pursue projects of their own design. Based on Google’s “Genius Hour”, students apply and expand theirs skills, reinforcing the concepts from the rest of class in a way that matters to them, showing them that knowledge really is power.

 

Physical, Earth, Space, and Life Sciences

With hands on science we explore, test, build, and ask questions to learn about the universe. Subjects are tied into the themes being explored in the core classrooms. Students work to reveal how everything is connected to the big ideas that have become the powerhouse behind our current understanding of the world.
