Tuesday, May 15th, the Battle of the Brains winners worked with the architects on structural components of Science City that must be worked around or incorporated into the design for the Big Brain Theory exhibit. The students' proposed design will require some transformation to work around existing structures. The three words used to describe the ideas for this design were contrast, transparency, and connectivity. Our next visit in July will provide us with the opportunity to work the graphic designers.
Farewell to our seniors who walked that stage Monday, May 14, 2018 and received their diploma's.
See all the events that TK5 took part in this year and how much we grew.
Elementary students in the Grandview C-4 School District gifted program FOCUS got to see what students thought were trendy items in the 1980's. The students will unearthed a time capsule Thursday, May 3rd at CAIR.
On January 23, 2018, the 4th and 5th grade Focus students began the collaborative work for their winning exhibit design, The Big Brain Theory. The students met the design teams from Burns & McDonnell and Science City and began to discuss the timeline for making the The Big Brain Theory come to life. The project has a one-million dollar budget, and the students were charged with thinking about the most important parts of their design and how their design will integrate with the exhibits that currently surround the build-area. After the meeting, the students toured Burns & McDonnell and were amazed as they experienced the work environment of the 16th rated Fortune's 2017 list of Best Companies to Work For.
