The Alternative School for Math & Science
Innovative teaching. Student-centered learning.
Middle School Grades 6-8
7th Grade Scientists Put Their Engineering Design Cars to the Test!
7th graders at ASMS spent the start of the year learning computer-assisted design (CAD) and engineering process by designing and 3D printing rubber band-driven cars. The goal was to create a car that would:
fit in a 180cm x 120cm x 120cm sizing box
travel 3 meters using stored energy from a rubber band
be visually appealing
Students performed experiments and evaluated their prototypes to maximize the success of their final designs.
Alumni Returns to Teach After School Shot Put Workshop
ASMS alumni, Lexi Thibault, held a shot put clinic here for current ASMS students on October 13. CPP High School sophomores are required to complete a personal project. Lexi decided she wanted to introduce shot put to ASMS students because it is something she is interested in and she didn't know a lot about it when she attended ASMS. Students in grades 6th through 8th participated in shot put drills and skill development while learning about what it's like to compete in shot put on the public high school track and field team.
