Columbia Secondary School for Math, Science & Engineering / MS/HS 362
Students worked on a long-term inquiry groups to research, investigate, design and construct a 3-D model for a city that reflects some alternate sources of energy to “Fuel their Future.” Using Sim City 4 software, they designed a virtual city and built on their experience with a narrative to add more clarity to their vision. Students collaboratively decided on key features and constructed scaled 3-D models predominantly out of recycled materials to represent their version of a futuristic city with residential, industrial, and commercial regions. Also, students have been working on a culminating project in science exploration focused on a project of their choice, some culminating in authentic game designs.
