6th Grade Science Studying Energy and Heat Transfer
The 6th grade Science classes have been studying energy and heat transfer.  In a recent project-based learning lesson students were given the opportunity to research passive (or super energy-efficient) homes.  Through their research students learned what makes homes able to retain their interior temperatures—specifically heat—in extreme cold temperatures.  These 30 students took their newly gained knowledge and were given the opportunity to create their own energy-efficient homes.
Partners were given a wide range of materials from which to choose to build their homes, with the only requirements being that the homes were a minimal size of 12” x 18” and that they must have 1 door and 4 windows and an open bottom.  Students constructed homes from cardboard, paper, file folders, craft sticks, and straws. 

When the homes were built, students then placed them over a lamp to produce heat and used a thermal imaging app on iPads borrowed from the Media Center to identify spots where the houses were losing heat.  They then used a variety of insulating materials ranging from cotton balls to play-doh to fill the leaks.  Students again used the thermal imaging app to gauge their success.  Students created Google Slide presentations and Google Docs reports explaining energy efficiency, why they used the material that they used (what real world materials did they represent?), and compared heat loss prior to and after insulating their houses.
Staff Development Out of State


CTE Teachers Travel to Philadelphia

 
Ms. Lisa Spencer and Mrs. Melody Williams, both Career and Technical Educators at Mattamuskeet Early College High School, were given the opportunity to travel to Philadelphia on December 1-4, 2016 to collaborate with other educators from across the country in a 3 day Seminar for high school educators on business and financial responsibility.  The seminar was all expense paid for both educators and was sponsored by PwC-KWHS, Knowledge @ Wharton High School.
College Preparation
Support to Prepare Students for College
 (For Students and Their Educators)

 
The website March 2 Success provides materials to help prepare students for college and offers a series of videos to simplify processes. The site provides customized lesson plans, allowing students to skip through what they already know. The programs can help students with grades, state required exams and/or as refreshers. 

Educators will also find a tool to help their students. There are full-length practice tests for the SAT and ACT and video series to explain students the college admission process and where to look  for financial aid. 
DNA Day at MECHS



Middle Grades Students Learning about DNA
Rachel Dee, a PhD Candidate at UNC Chapel Hill coordinated a visit to Mattamuskeet Early College High School with Mr Crider.  She discussed DNA and Forensics in real life.  She also discussed other areas in science that our students might be interested in after graduation. Students thoroughly enjoyed her session and were highly engaged.
