20160216 Science class科學課: 探索土壤液化的科學與建築物的地基 & 動手做土壤液化科學實驗 (Introduction to Soil Liquefaction & DIY Soil Liquefaction Experiments)

Submitted by Jenny on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 10:00

In this class, we learned about soil liquefaction.  We did our own experiments and simulated the p-wave and s-wave recording.

20160119 Coding Class - EV3 Mindstorm Rube Goldberg Machine Part 2

Submitted by Jenny on Tue, 01/26/2016 - 11:16

At Language Plus Living Spalce's coding class on January 19th, we finished our Rube Goldberg machine. Each kid's module had to run a metal ball through it. After they had finished building it, they then had to work together to figure out the order in which each module should go and how to get the ball from one module to the next.

At Language Plus Living Space, for our Tuesday coding class, we decided to build a modular, repeating Rube Goldberg machine this time. Metal balls would travel between the 3 Lego modules, each built and programmed by one kid.  We did the majority of the building today and will do integration and programming next class. Here's their progress so far!

Coding Class - Mindstorm EV3 Programming (Trash collector part 2)

Submitted by Jenny on Thu, 12/24/2015 - 09:12

Continuing last week's programming class, we worked on perfecting our trash collect.  Despite numourous failures and fastering frustration, we finally got the trash collector to work (somewhat).  Here is a post on 12/22/2015's programming class.

Every week, kids always look forward to Tuesday.  This is a day that we have friends coming over and study with us.  We work on programming skills and learn about science from a day-to-day perspective.  Here is a post on 12/05/2015's programming class.

 

考試這檔事

Submitted by Jenny on Fri, 11/27/2015 - 15:07

考試這檔事對台灣長大的孩子一定一點也不陌生,不但是從小考到大,很多工作也是要用考的才會被錄取。考試似乎跟公平競爭畫上等號。我們每一科都考,連體育也考,所有的成績都要考試才能出來。

我這年代長大的,在台灣上學的,一定都經歷過因為沒有考到老師訂的標準,被老師打的教訓,當時可是有各種萬靈藥膏,讓老師打了比較不會痛。這年代的,為了考試成績,孩子們是各種的補習,評量是堆積如山,老師會用班費多買幾本,安親班更是多,國中生一天有七節課,可以考到九次試,這讓我覺得,這三十年來,好像教育沒什麼變,沒有跟著社會進步,沒有隨著變新而改變。這會造成什麼現象? 沒有考的,老師就不教、不聞不問,孩子們整天會為了複習,而死記知識,除了老師有教的,有考過的,其他就會認為不是該吸收的知識範圍了,其實,也沒時間去學別的東西了。

誰把孩子教笨了? 被綁架的教育! 讚聲大國民 節目

上週四,Owen and Ella的媽媽有機會在 讚聲大國民 節目裡跟大家分享一些教育理念,談了許多考試對孩子的影響已以及Owen and Ella 在家自學的情況,有興趣的可以撥些時間來看一下喔!

 

 

 

 

 

 

20150714 science class - 探索溫度與熱的科學&動手設計製作「保溫瓶」與「環保隔熱房屋」創意科學實驗作品

Submitted by Jenny on Wed, 07/15/2015 - 08:02

這星期我們做了自己的保溫瓶! 用各種不同的材料來將瓶子包裝起來,然後,在大太陽下測試,很多孩子的冰塊在五分鐘後,都還沒溶掉,作的很成功!

In science class today, we made our own thermal bottle. By using light reflective material, kids layered their plastic bottle. They also created their own design. Then, we tested the bottles under hot sun by putting ice inside and see if the ice would melt after 5 minutes. Most of the kids had great results!

Ella種酪梨子 Ella growing avocado seedElla常在種蔬菜,她已經種過蔥,青蔥和小白菜等。最近,她想種酪梨!事實上,這是一個很大的任務,因為它會長為一棵樹,不只是一個小盆子就可以裝的下!如何酪梨子萌芽也是件困難的事。因此,我們只好先去網上求救了,我們發現,種子需要被部分地浸沒在水中4至6週前它才可以發芽。因此,Ella做了一個一到四周的表格,她每天早上看著種子,看是否有比較前一天有什麼差別。從硬如石頭到現在 (有一星期的時間),酪梨子的表面已經有裂痕了,Ella真是欣喜若狂!我想,我們應該去尋找一個大花盆了。
