New Friday Electives for Spring 2019


Check out what’s NEW every Friday at American Academy:

Marine Megafauna: An Introduction to Marine Science and Conservation

Learn about sea turtles, whales, dolphins, seals, penguins, sharks, giant squid and other large ocean creatures – collectively known as marine megafauna – and what they can tell us about how the ocean works and why it is so important for all life on earth.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Students will use their critical thinking and teamwork skills to come up with new ideas and solutions to problems. They will design their own business plans and meet with local entrepreneurs and business professionals.

Seeing through Photographs 

This class will teach students to not only see photographs, but also understand their meaning and context. We will explore photography as means of artistic expression, as a tool for science and exploration, to tell stories and record histories, and as a mode of communication in our ever increasingly visual culture. Students will create their own photo essay on a subject of their choice.

BrainPOP 

Join characters Tim and Moby for a curiosity adventure! This educational and entertaining series of videos, quizzes and games are a great way to learn about science, social studies, art, math and more while having fun.
