    On January 31st, Star Lab Portable Planetarium visited the 10th and 11th grade at Learning Prep, and the show was a huge success! During this experience our students entered a traveling planetarium in which they were able to look at the night sky during different points of the year. Within this very concrete, tactile, and immersive experience the students were able to see how expansive space really is. Each of the four programs was a little different as they were directed by student questions as well as the the Massachusetts STE Frameworks. This show was funded by PIE (Partners in Education committee).

    A small group of 7 students entered Lenovo’s Traveling Storybook Competition by writing a story about what schools would look like in the future. Their entertaining and imaginative story about Onyx Milkyway, a visiting student coming to Learning Future School (LFS) in the year 3020 was filled with creative ideas like portal travel, voice activated locks, and robotic chefs. The story was noticed by Lenovo and was chosen as top 10 in the nation!

    The top 10 stories were then animated by a professional team. The short animated videos are posted on Lenovo’s Traveling Storybook website and will be voted on to determine a winner. The school with the most votes by March 19th wins $25,000 from Lenovo to create a reimagined technology space for the school.

    ***We need your help to vote! To watch the video and vote via this link: https://www.lenovotravelingstorybook.com/gallery

    You can vote multiple times and you can vote using different devices (computer, phone, ipad) to get more votes. Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen to submit your vote. Feel free to share this link and our story with friends, family, and your local communities.

    Congrats to our students!

    I’m excited to share with you our first installment of monthly greenhouse updates!

    After completing the first two terms of Horticulture, students have mastered the basics of greenhouse maintenance : propagating, seeding, transplaning, plant ID, watering, pest control, how to run a plant sale, and lots of cleaning.

    This month, as we gear up for our spring plant sale, we are adding a new layer to our greenhouse knowledge by talking about plant science. Notably, we’ve looked at a few plants with unique biologies like the dionaea muscipula, or venus flytrap and the mimosa pudica, or sensitive plant, which respond to touch. Students are all growing their own mimosa which famously responds to touch by rapidly folding up its leaves.

    With greenhouse maintenance and plant science under our belt, we will soon be broadening our scope by looking at sustainability, gardening, growing food, medicinal and therapeutic uses of plants, and urban farming. More updates on these topics to come!

    It’s never too early to start planning this year’s garden! Enjoy the slowly lengthening days, everyone!

    Cheers,

    Bella
