STEAM’IN into NCA Events

Steamin1Students in the 6th Grade class at NDMA were guests at New Century Academy on May 8th.  They joined the 7th Graders at NCA and participated in their classes and experienced the social aspects of the Jr. High and High School lunch at NCA.  The 6th Grade class was also invited to a 6-8th Grade dance where they participated in fun games and danced the night Steamin6away.

The teachers at New Century Academy were all impressed with the 6th graders’ enthusiasm and excitement during class time and enjoyed getting to know the students at the dance.  It was a fun filled day in the Jr. High at NCA and we’re looking forward to having the 6th graders as students when they enter Jr. High for the 2015/2016 school year.

3…2…1… BLAST OFF

Blastoff2The 8th Grade students at New Century Academy, tested their Model Water Bottle Rockets last week in Science class while studying the History and Science of Rockets.  They were to create the most aerodynamic Model Water Bottle Rocket by manipulating the cone piece and fins while needing to carry a weight of 10 bolts with clay.  Each group was trying to achieve the greatest height and time in flight. They used a 2 liter pop bottle for the body of the rocket and filled the bottle 45% full of water to create thrust during the launch from an air compressor.  The class had fun and many groups achieved quite a high flight during the launch.  Students would like to thank Andrew Rettig, a 10th Grader at NCA, for contributing his self-built Bottle Rocket Launcher for the class to use!
