Curious Cities Finalé

25 January 2017

For the past 3 weeks, the school has been buzzing with the sound of exploration and curiosity. This week, the children have gathered their data and their newly acquired skills and brought these together in a collaborative effort.

The new term saw the launch of MIT’s second challenge, Curious Cities. They presented our students with the challenge to use data to identify a problem within our local environment and bring awareness of this in a creative way. Students from Pre-Nursery up to Year 6 have been tackling this problem, in a huge range of different and creative ways.

Classes have gone on local field trips, collecting data on environmental issues such as litter and traffic, while others have kept their excursions more local, heading around the school to keep track of how efficient teachers are with preserving energy and turning off their lights.

This week, the children have gathered their data and their newly acquired skills and brought these together in a collaborative effort. In Year 3, the children shared their findings with their peers using a huge range of different media including digitally created infographics, data sculptures, stop-motion videos, model inventions, prezis and comic books.

It has been a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn key collaboration skills and gain independence in their problem solving. It has been a great success and we look forward to our 3rd challenge coming in term 3!
