Cars, Chemistry, and Coding

Today at C:/dags we stopped into conduct post-project reflections with teachers who just wrapped up D3 projects with their class. Mr. Garcia’s balloon powered car project ended on a high note with a competition that would students’ final designs to the test.  After winners were crowned, a discussion was held to understand the successful aspects of the various designs through the lens of physics content (issues of friction, wind resistance, etc).  Mrs. Se is busy putting together an exciting new unit on the basics of HTML coding which will be a culminating project in support of her 10th grade Chemistry class. We are looking forward to seeing the results!  Students, teachers, and D3 facilitators alike are looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday next week.  Stay tuned!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
