SM&SH Day at Hotchkiss for Gr. 6

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 9:15 AM - 2:30 PM

Region One Sixth-grade Math & Science Day at Hotchkiss

Dear Parents,

All sixth-grade students from Region One middle schools and IMS are invited to participate in a fun-filled day of workshops and activities in math and science on Tuesday, October 23rd, at The Hotchkiss School. Together, math and science are the driving forces behind the most exciting innovations of this century. Perhaps a glimpse of distinctive applications will spark the imagination of the next generation and encourage them to explore new ideas, solve and unlock puzzles, and imagine creative solutions to challenging questions.

Students will start the day with an engaging presentation by Dr. Judith Guzzo, senior robotics and machine-to-machine systems scientist at GE Global Research. During the day, students will participate in two hands-on workshops led by math and science teachers and working professionals from the community. During lunch break, they will visit activity tables set up by Hotchkiss students where they can explore various puzzles and games. Please note that science workshops will take place in labs. Students should wear clothing that’s comfortable and lab-appropriate, including closed-toe shoes.

Students will be divided into regionally integrated groups of about 12 students each based on their workshop preferences. Teachers and volunteers will accompany each group to workshops and to the dining hall for lunch. Students need to bring their own lunches. Hotchkiss will provide them with water, lemonade, fresh fruit and cookies.

We are looking forward to sharing some exciting math and science with your children on Tuesday, October 23rdS!
