Middle School at the Computer History Museum
KLS Students Explore atLocal Museum
Have you ever wished you could go to school at a museum? Our Middle School students recently got the chance to transform a local museum into their classroom!
In their second week of the Term, KLS Middle School students spent time learning at the Computer History Museum, located about two miles away from our Mountain View campus. The museum has been closed to public visitors, making for an exciting opportunity for our students to learn in a unique environment.
Throughout the week, students engaged with a range of activities in their classes at the museum, including a Computer Science maze game to explore algorithms,an ELA discussion of the bookLook Both Waysthat culminated in drawing maps inspired by the concept of magical realism,a Math challenge to create hexa-hexaflexagons,a Physics challenge to engineer bridges and skyscrapers using K'nex,a Traveling Museum History project to curate exhibits that document the past year, and more.
Students had the chance to see one of the museum's exhibits come to life, which featuredinteractive learning stations and artifacts from throughout computer science history. It was an exciting week for our community of learners at the museum!
