The new school year has begun, and our students have already picked up some new skills in their STEAM Coding classes! Grades 8 and 9 have been working on programming for animated sequences, with some very creative results. 

Students have been getting familiar with HTML and Scratch, building instructions to get animated animals dancing in time with music tracks.

Below you will see some of the work our students have produced. They had a lot of fun producing these sequences, and we think the results are pretty cool, too!

Lessons learnt from Distance Learning at Brillantmont

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

On March 13th, the Brillantmont world changed dramatically. Most of our students headed home to their families as COVID-19 edged closer. With another 20 weeks of school to go, it was time to switch into distance learning mode.

Distance learning can never replace presential learning in the classroom and none of us should underestimate the challenges that our young people faced, as they quickly said goodbye to friends and headed off into uncertainty.

 

 

As the world reeled, our students’ world was shaken as they realised that adults – leaders, teachers, politicians – didn’t always have the reassuring answers they sought, since the situation was constantly evolving.
