New Summer Program At O’Maley

Hi, Joey,The first “Summer Science Grad Camp” at O’Maley Innovation Middle School has just wrapped up. An enthusiastic group of “graduates” of Grades 7 and 8 at O’Maley spent two weeks working alongside teachers exploring new ideas and innovative projects that could be incorporated into the science curriculum at each of the grade levels in future years.
Grade 7 students and teachers delved into life science studies for a week in the O’Maley “Slime Lab,” studying single-cell organisms, engaging in dissection studies and examining human anatomy with new model torsos that just arrived at the school. They spent another week exploring engineering ideas, culminating a full building event with concrete in the lab. Grade 7 students also had three field trips to the MIT Museum, the Museum of Science and the Harvard Museum of Natural history, all in Cambridge.
Grade 8 students extended the work they had done with the O’Maley 3D printers during the school, applying their new skills to two exciting projects: designing and creating prosthetic hands, and “printing” 3D chocolates (visiting Gloucester’s own Turtle Alley for inspiration)! They worked with e-Nable, an organization that uses 3D printing to produce prothetics, on the design software, and also explored tessellations–using repetitive geometic shapes to create a design on a flat plane.   
Here is the link to more photos from this two-week program:
