From Liam Murphy, Shockwave Robotics Team Coach with Mentors Morgan Brown and Daren Gardner:
The Grauer School's FTC Shockwave Robotics #3848 team had a great performance at their Gauss League Meet in Carlsbad last Sunday, January 12. The team won 3 of their 5 matches, and their robot performed extremely well. The team is looking forward to making improvements to the robot that will help them be even more successful in their next meet. Congratulations to Shockwave team members Nate M. '20, Jason W. '21, Lourdes F. '22, Joshua B. '22, Milo A. '22, Gabriel C. '23, Ethan D. '23, John Joseph H. '23, and Max B. '23 on a great second meet of the season! The team's next meet will be on Sunday, January 26 at University City High School.
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer shares some wisdom about why students may not be performing to their full potential at school.
Schools and parents need a better definition of “success” for our youth. Instead of solely measuring scholastic aptitude and achievement, we must also measure social and emotional development, moral and character development, non-cognitive skills, and student engagement.
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer shares the simple process of immersing yourself in nature and taking a walk using the Japanese process of Shinrin-yoku.
Dr. Grauer asks the question: Can we change the definition of intelligence to include a greater spiritual and ecological sensitivity? That would be a fantastic challenge for our schools.
In this week’s column, Dr. Grauer, tongue in cheek, considers the loneliness of teaching children about the sacred connectedness of all creation.
