In the Classroom
Shark Week @ Benway - Megaladon
Megalodon, meaning "big tooth", is an extinct s species of mackerel shark that lived approximately 23 to 3.6 million years ago. While regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators to have ever lived, the megalodon is only known from fragmentary remains, and its appearance and maximum size are uncertain. Scientists differ on whether it would have more closely resembled a stockier version of the great white shark
Benway students with the help of Ken from The Pearl Observatory were able to learn about the Magaldon through hands on learning experiments. The students then work together to color, cut, and puzzled together a 16 foot version of the ancient shark as a group project.
The History of the Catapult
This classic STEM activity was first invented in 400 BCE! Invented by The Greek Dionysius the Elder of Syracuse. This weapon of warfare proved incredibly effective and was a key weapon of warfare until Medieval Times.
After crafting their catapults, they were tested for Accuracy, Distance and Force. All the science here is focused on Newton’s Third Law of Motion states: An object at rest stays at rest until a force is applied, and an object will stay in motion until something creates an imbalance in the motion. Every action causes a reaction.
The Exploding Watermelon activity is a fun, edible science experiment that helps kids of all ages learn about potential and kinetic energy. This watermelon rubber band challenge is a fun summer science where kids will complete the watermelon challenge to learn how many rubber bands it takes to explode a watermelon!
Outside the Classroom
The Autobahn Indoor Speedway STEM Academy is a field trip based curriculum developed by STEM educators which provided our students a hands-on driving experience. During this experience, Benway students learned the history of racing, the science behind speed, acceleration and friction and Newton’s law of motion as they competed for the ultimate prize- First Place and The Fasted Lap Time!
TaeKwonDo with Master Kim
Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. This concept comes from the meaning of Tae Kwon to put fists under control. Thus Taekwondo means "the right way of using all parts of the body to stop fights and help to build a better and more peaceful world."
It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind
