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 Prep School Technology Department believes everyone should have a comfort and adeptness with the vital skills of the 21st century. These skills include coding, robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality, graphic design and an understanding of how technology fits into larger society.
The goal of the program is to develop in our students a “computational mindset." This mindset teaches them how to think creatively and algorithmically while also learning to abstract problems and use technology to collaborate and communicate. Students learn best through self-paced learning and freedom for creativity. Students are asked to be curious and expected to be responsibly engaged with technology and social media.
