This is a semi-intensive workshop geared towards middle schoolers interested in exploring the world of scientific research. By the end, students will learn all the core skills needed to successfully plan and execute a research or engineering project that they can use to participate in science fairs. A total of five big ideas are covered over a span of eight weekends. The following topics will be covered: 1) effective brainstorming, 2) project planning and logistics, 3) introduction to probability and statistics, 4) introduction to scientific writing, and lastly 5) effective presentation. Students are asked to develop a unique project idea that they will work on throughout the duration of the workshop. Each class will be split up into two main components: a 45 minute to 1 hour lecture period where students are introduced to the necessary skills, as well as another hour for them to put these skills into practice and translate what that means for their individual project. During this time, working with peers and collaboration is highly encouraged, but the instructors are also closely working with students. Ultimately, students will be able to leave this workshop with a fully planned project that they can feel confident in presenting at any science fairs.
The proposed schedule is as follows:
Week One: Brainstorming will cover:
Week Two: Planning/Executing will cover:
Week Three: Statistics Part I
Week Four: Statistics Part II
Week Five: Scientific Writing
Week Six: Presentation
In this class, basic conversational French will be focused on. During this class, there will be a total of 4 sections over the span of 2 weekends. The topics of each class are as follows: Greetings and Introduction (Introducing yourself, learning numbers, location, where you are from, Adjectives, and ways to say goodbye.), Way to Convey( Telling others about your likes and dislikes in terms of colors, sports, school subject, etc.), Starting Conversation (Cultural Exploration, the difference between France and the United States and learning about weather and family), and Verbs ( learning about the major verb group and learn more about culture while learning about verbs. As many know, Learning languages is more than learning grammar, it means learning about the culture. Throughout this class, you will learn critical grammar rules, but also how to survive in France, shopping, blending with others, and the nourishing cultural aspect. I hope you enjoy learning this beautiful language!
