A BUNCH OF SHORT CLASSES ON A HUGE VARIETY OF COOL TOPICS AT AN AMAZING UNIVERSITY IN BOSTON!
Our GWCS Coyotes love learning so much that six of them traveled to Boston from September 21-25, 2015 to participate in the MIT Splash weekend. They took classes in a variety of subjects from science and math to philosophy and hip hop. This year our students enjoyed learning about strategy and game design (not to mention the chance to play Super Smash Brothers with MIT students on the day of first release!) at the MIT Game Lab and they programmed robots and toured the MIT museum. In addition to full days of MIT Splash classes, they extended their visit to explore and tour Boston's history and cuisine.
The six GWCS students (Joshua, Kelley, Holden, Danny, Emily and Bobby) and five parents (Mrs. Bellows, Mrs. Carlisle, Mr. Carlisle, Dr. Dana, and Mrs. Saile) who attended MIT Splash this year had lots of fun filling their heads with new ideas and experiences. This is the second year in a row that Mrs. Saile (GWCS parent & PAC President) organized this parent-led trip to MIT Splash in Boston, MA. The feedback about the trip and the students' experiences were so exciting that GWCS plans to make this an annual school sponsored trip in the future.
