Design Challenge, Maple Syrup Harvest Highlight Friday Morning Activities

March 20, 2017


Grade-specific activities include design thinking challenge, modules, and field trips prior to International Day festivities.

Prior to a full slate of International Day festivities on Friday, March 17, Shattuck-St. Mary’s students in grades 10-12 engaged in a series of grade-specific activities. 

Sophomores were split into teams by advisory groups for a design thinking challenge in weCreate, where they recycled, reused, and re-engineered everyday materials into new inventions. 

Juniors had the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities, including short modules introducing students to ultimate frisbee, suturing, and 3D printing, harvesting maple syrup at River Bend Nature Center, and a presentation that covered the topic of gender and the media. 

Senior students headed to Newhall Auditorium to view a series of international films, including “Sing,” “Enemies Within,” and “Time Code.”

Meanwhile, many other students headed to kitchens throughout campus to begin preparing their International Day dishes for the afternoon. For additional International Day coverage, visit the SSM Flickr page or this story link
