🦠🧬Plato the Protozoa🩺🦠

Hello everyone!

This is officially my last scimatics blog post. Wow from the time I’m writing this we only have three more days (not including weekends) until school ends. I’m excited but also kind of sad because my first year of high school is over. I know I’ve said this before but wow it’s gone by fast. At the beginning of the year I wasn’t sure weather I’d made the right decision choosing seycove but, looking back I think I did.

💐My First Spring Exhibition🌸

Hello everyone!

This isn’t a normal blog post because it’s not about a project it’s about the 2022 spring exhibition so this’ll probably be a little bit shorter of a blog post then my normal ones. You might be wondering what an exhibition is well, it’s a way for us learners to show our growth and all our hard work to family and friends. All the exhibitions have a theme and this years theme was basically about what PLP is. If you want to know know what we did for the winter exhibition check this post out.

Swimming In Surface Area and Volume🏊‍♀️

Hello everyone!

This is my second to last Scimatics blog post for grade 8! Wow this year has really gone by fast i’m almost done my first high school year and it feels so crazy to almost be finished. So about this project. This project was mostly math based and a lot of the math was things we already had learned but, we basically just learned more about how to calculate different shapes and just learned more about the concept in general.

What’s The Matter With Matter?

Hello everyone!

This blog post is about my most recent scimatics project ‘Chemistry Coding’. I was really excited for this project because I really like chemistry and I was super excited to learn about it. The end goal of this project was to create a scratch game or simulator that depicts the movement of matter in different states. The driving question for this project was: How can the behaviour of matter be explained by the kinetic molecular theory and atomic theory?

💥⭐️My Laser Star ⭐️💥

Hello everyone!

This is my second Scimatics blog post (even though it’s my third project I just didn’t have a blog back then) this project is called Laser Laws! I was super excited for this project when I heard about it. The two main concepts for this project were the Pythagorean Theorem and the Law of Reflection. Our driving question for this project was: How can we test the pythagorean theorem and the law of reflection?

Tectonic Chances!

Hi everyone I’m back with my very first Scimatics blog post! For this project our driving question was: How does the movement of Earth’s tectonic plates cause observable changes and effects? I think I improved my understanding of this question by reading the texts books to help me learn about Earth’s tectonic plates. I also now know why Earthquakes, Volcanos etc… are caused. Throughout this project I worked with one other person and her name is Keira, her blog will be linked below. For this project we created a game, my partner and I decided to create a board game but I’ll talk more about it later in the post. The things we were evaluated on were the curricular competencies; Evaluating, Questioning and predicting, Understanding and solving.
