  • 9th Grade "SUMMER BOOK TALKS"

    Posted by Peter Delani on 9/20/2019 2:00:00 PM

    Book Talk

    All 9th graders participated in summer reading “book talks” today with faculty from all over the building. 18 faculty members chose a book for incoming 9th graders to choose from last June; today each teacher lead a discussion with those students. Conversations covered general opinions on the book, character and plot development, themes and lessons to be learned, and how each book may fit under the 9th grade essential question, “Who am I and how do I know?” All groups seemed energized and engaged, proving that providing greater choice for our students allows them to explore literature in a more authentic way, in hopes they can find some reading they enjoy doing!

  • Masco Digital Learning Teacher Ryan King helps discover a lost WWII Navy Ship & rewrite history

    Posted by Peter Delani on 9/13/2019 6:00:00 AM

    How the discovery of a lost Navy ship rewrote a chapter of Maine history

    Inside the documentary series “The Hunt for Eagle 56.”

    PORTLAND, Maine — The ship went down six miles off the coast of Cape Elizabeth, a U.S. Navy patrol boat carrying 62 crew members, only thirteen of whom survived. It sank on April 23, 1945, just two weeks before Germany surrendered in World War II. For decades the Navy believed a boiler had exploded on Eagle 56. That, it turned out, was not the case.

    Ryan King, an amateur diver from New Hampshire, is the man who found the evidence that rewrites the history of Eagle 56. Working in the cold and gloom 260 feet below the ocean’s surface, he found the boiler from the ship intact and clearly undamaged. Eagle 56 had not gone down because its own equipment exploded—a German submarine had attacked it.

    This is a rich story, one told in the upcoming Smithsonian Channel series called “The Hunt for Eagle 56.” Lone Wolf Media in South Portland produced the documentary, which is fitting—a Maine story told by Maine filmmakers. How did King react when he found the boiler on the ocean floor? What were the challenges producer R. Jameson Smith, a native of Portland, faced in telling the story? Why did the new and accurate version of events matter so much to the families of the men who died on the ship? Watch our interview with Smith and King and learn about the light they’ve shed on this compelling chapter of Maine history.

    Note: Smithsonian Channel will air the first episode of “The Hunt for Eagle 56” on at 9:00 p.m. on September 22.How the discovery of a lost Navy Ship rewrote a chapter of Maine history

  • PRODUCT DESIGN CLASS: The Chair Challenge

    Posted by Peter Delani on 9/9/2019 12:00:00 PM

     

    Product Design

    Ms. Evans Product Design Class: Chair Challenge:

    Students in the  Innovative Product Design class were given the assignment to design a prototype for an innovative chair that could be mass produced.  Requirements included that the chair hold their weight and also be aesthetically pleasing.  The parameters were to use foam core as the main material with the addition of some adhesives.  Students focused on the following categories when solving the challenge:  Form, Function, Creativity and Craftsmanship.   Students spent quarter four brainstorming, sketching, building a small scale model, and constructing a final prototype.  The final display in the high school foyer shows the many possibilities of how this challenge was solved by our students through perseverance and innovation.

  • New to Masco – sorting stations that include composting!

    Posted by Peter Delani on 8/29/2019 1:00:00 PM

    compost

    The Green Team, including the Environmental Club, several members of Masconomet’s leadership, and community partners have worked for nearly a year on this project to make Masco more green!

    Our facilities staff built the stations for the Green Team’s first initiative.  From left to right in the photo above, tan barrel – to pour out liquids, blue for recycling, green for composting, and black for trash.  Examples of what can be recycled or composted are displayed on the table above each barrel. There is a spot to stack your trays on the table as well.

      Staff from both middle and high school had a chance to try out the new system already.  If you have a future project idea for The Green Team, contact Jessica Zaniewski: jzaniewski@masconomet.org.
