This year’s National K-12 Chess Championships were replaced by a novel online edition due to COVID. Predictably, the new format presented an array of technical and logistical challenges compared to the annual trip to Florida, but the event was still well-attended and highly competitive. Meanwhile, Hans N.' 21 was abroad confirming his Grandmaster status.
The mission of the Science Department at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School is to help students develop the skills and knowledge to deeply explore scientific questions.
Students learn to make detailed observations, design and perform experiments, analyze data and communicate their results. They develop an understanding of basic principles of physical and life sciences and learn how data are collected, visualized and interpreted. They learn how to state a claim and provide evidence and reasoning to justify the claim. Finally, they illustrate the creative nature of scientific thought.
