LS students spend a creative day at HSSIC

Grades 1 and 2 students spent a day of creative learning at the Innovatrium of the Miriam College-Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center (MC-HSSIC) last January 18-19, 2018 during their Alternative Classroom Experiences for Students (ACES) activities.

Guest Percival "Percy" Denolo, the Philippines' first mud artist and currently a finalist in Pilipinas Got Talent Season 5, demonstrated how creative minds and gentle hands can create art from light and shadow using mud. He captivated the young learners with images from well-loved Disney movies, all created right before their very eyes. For his last performance, Denolo interpreted the Miriam College School Hymn.

The light and shadow activity was followed by a session of races using pre-programmed robots and cars made from recycled materials. The activity was facilitated by Lei Sta. Maria and Yssy Alvero of the SMILE Team. The activity aims to teach the students how the human mind is essential to creating new things as well as doing things differently. Everyone enjoyed the final exercise on biomimicry (copying from nature) as paper helicopters were created from paper strips and paperclips.

LS has been a partner of SMILE Team for three years now. SMILE stands for Specializing in Modern, Interactive Learning Experiences. They are the unit’s external club moderators, specifically for the Engineering for Kids club.

The students took their first tour of the other learning spaces at the Innovation Center before returning to the Lower School grounds.
