Students in Saint Andrew’s School 7th Grade Latin Class used a Design Cycle Engineering model to investigate ( they did a lot of research and created keynote presentations about Greek architecture and specifically the Parthenon ), plan ( they then had to plan out how the ancient architects built the structure and how they could do it), create (using a program called TinkerCad for creating 3D structures as well as minecraft.edu), and evaluate ( created a video of their experience and of them discussing their successes and failures) to build the Parthenon model. The project satisfied the Middle Years Programme criteria of “culture” within the Latin subject guide. We are very proud of our students!
