Friday, March 4th, 2022—On this ‘Throwback Thursday,’ we are sharing an art project from Utica Academy of Science junior-senior high school. This project focuses on self-love and perception. Many people, including teenagers and young adults, face varying insecurities about themselves.
The goal of the 'What Makes you Different, Makes you Beautiful' art project allowed the students to explore through art the different 'faces' and insecurities they have within themselves and create a collage. Their artwork shows them with their masks off, and they shared why (or why they don't) wear their mask.
This art project was very moving and allowed the students to realize that they are more alike than they are different. Everyone can have a tendency to feel insecure about themselves, and it's important to empower others and be kind to one another.
Monday, April 4th, 2022—Court may not be in session, but Utica Academy of Science elementary school welcomed guest speaker (and guest reader), Supreme Court Judge David Murad who spoke with the first-grade Atoms. During his visit, Judge Murad shared with the students his legal background and career as a Supreme Court Judge. He also shared some legal advice (pro-bono, of course), read one of his favorite story books, and left the Atoms with excellent advice - to always act fairly.
We want to thank Supreme Court Judge David Murad for taking time out of his schedule to come and speak with the Atoms!
Friday, March 11th, 2022—The Utica Academy of Science elementary school students in Ms. DeAngelis & Ms. Flihan's class embarked on a trip 'under the sea' where no snorkeling gear would be necessary. For this trip, students put their creativity to the test when making animal defense models. For this hands-on, minds-on class project, students could select one of the following animals: sea turtle, crab, pufferfish, or lionfish. Upon selecting their animals, Atoms created their defense models based on the animal's structure. This fun and the creative project allowed the students to think outside the box and apply what they learned.
Wednesday, February 9th, 2022—It may be spring, but who doesn't love a good 'throwback?' In February, Utica Academy of Science junior-senior high school ENL students visited the Clinton Arena for an ice skating field trip. For many of the students, this was their first-time ice skating. As one can imagine, there were a few falls, but teamwork was always on full display in true Atom fashion. By the end of this field trip, all the students were skating like future Olympians.
Friday, April 8th, 2022—This may seem a little 'crazy' to you, but if you are a member of Utica Academy of Science elementary school's newest Math Club, The Crazy 8's, this is business as usual!
Before Spring Recess, the Crazy 8's meet for an afternoon of math, fun and excitement. With hands-on, minds-on learning, Atoms have been able to apply what they have learned in the classroom to the STEM activities in Crazy 8s.
Over the last few weeks, students have solved math problems using dice, playing Bingo (on a life-size board), plotting coordinates to find buried treasure, and making (and testing) marshmallow catapults.
We all knew that math could be this much fun! Thank you, Crazy 8s, for helping bring math to life and all the fun and excitement. Please click here to visit our Facebook page to view more pictures from the Crazy 8s.
