Happy New Year 2018-19!
It’s a new school year, and we have lots more STEM stuff planned in the new Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation!
We have record numbers of students signed up for STEM activities on top of their already rigorous math and science classes: robotics (50+ students on 4 teams, under the guidance of Mr. Witman and Dr. Hamill), coding (26 students in advanced computer science classes with Dr. Kessner, in addition to the coding electives), honors research in science (18 students advised by Dr. Ponzio), and a brand new engineering course taught by Dr. Hamill (11 students).
Attention new Marlborough students: don’t be shy, get involved!
In my experience, the best way to really understand something is to play with it. Here is a thought from Mr. Rogers on cultivating this playful attitude.
As work grows out of play, an attitude toward work grows with it – an attitude that may persist all through our workaday life. That attitude can have a lot to do with how we accept challenges, how we can cope with failures, and whether we can find the inner fulfillment that makes working, in and of itself, worthwhile.
