This immersive experience provided freshmen with a comprehensive understanding of the world of Greek mythology, helping them prepare for Homer’s work.
The Class of 2027 took part in more thrilling activities in their physics class by leading Barbies through a bungee jump. In Ms. Crilly and Mrs. Layton’s classes, the girls tested their experimental design skills for this exercise. According to Ms. Crilly, “the goal of the lab is to give Barbie the greatest thrill of her life, while still keeping her safe as she bungee jumps from the second floor of Trinity Hall.” In order to take part in this activity, students had to design an experiment, identify variables, collect data and generate a math model. After this session, students were prepared to face the challenges of physics labs throughout the course of the year.
