Aerospace Engineering Students Solve Four Challenges!
Students in Aerospace Engineering researched designs of paper airplanes in order to design one that could meet four challenges with a single paper airplane: travel 30 feet, make a left turn, go under one object and over another, and finally return to travel 30 feet. Students had to use their knowledge of aircraft trim and control to modify the surfaces of the paper airplane in order to meet each of the challenges. The project brought a number of challenges to the students as they were required to critically think about the modification necessary to pass the challenges. In the end, all students were able to pass the four challenges.
Senior Ian Nelson, and junior Grant Cobos, were featured this week in the Simi Valley Acorn. The two Grace High School students presented their in-depth studies on Mars and the Moon during the American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference in San Francisco on December 14, 2023.
From preschool to high school, Grace students welcomed in the Christmas season with joyful musical performances. The 6th grade and Jr/Sr High bands kicked off the season with their Christmas performance, Hear Them Ring, on November 30th. Then, the Jr/Sr High choir presented Sing We Now of Christmas on December 7th and 8th. Our preschool students took to the stage on December 11th with an adorable performance titled A Joyful Noise, and our K-2nd graders sang their hearts out on December 12th in their show titled, Behold! Finally, the 3rd-6th grade students finished out the season with their performance called Do You Hear What I Hear? on December 13th.
You can see an example of our Preschool's hands-on learning approach in our Butterfly Class's recent exploration of the letter "C." Our students engaged in workbook writing practice, fine motor cereal gluing, and Christmas tree decorating.
