Interdisciplinary Study and Bonding on Cape Cod

The Class of 2017 and their teachers are on Cape Cod, where they are spending this week in rich interdisciplinary study of marine ecology.  During these days, the boys will explore the marine environment, participate in observational drawing sessions, and engage in a STEAM project in which they construct a critter, using what they have learned about the environment, adaptation, evolution, art, and design.

Introduced two years ago, the critter project is a big hit with the boys, who eagerly rise to its creative design, mathematical, and scientific challenges.

A decades' long tradition at Saint David's, the Cape Cod trip is ever evolving in alignment with our program of studies.  Just as important is the opportunity it affords our seventh graders to expand and deepen friendships, so vital to the emotional development of boys.
