Amy Biehl Community School is holding a schoolwide reading of the book Matilda! Because Matilda is much smarter than the adults around her, a few 5th graders at Amy Biehl challenged some adults to "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" The students dominated the adults by a final score of 2,600-1,400.
Last Friday, local Santa Fe artist Bobby Beals visited Amy Biehl Community School to teach kids about his career as an artist, curator, skater and designer! He showed students some of his custom skateboards and shirts from his company Kamagraph. He then taught students how he screen prints his shirts by hand, and even let a few kids make some shirts of their own! Students took that knowledge and began to use a Skateboard template in Art class and create their art pieces. While they work on that in Art, in STEM class they will create the Graphic User Interface (GUI) of their app using the MIT App Inventor. Next week, they will code and debug the app and will have 3 main screens, one of the art, one with them and their art, and one page with their inspiration! Thank you Bobby for coming!
