“Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology,” May 2022
In May, we had our first Design and Technology exhibition at the D & T Lab called ‘Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology’. Our MS students displayed their work, and were wholeheartedly appreciated by parents and fifth graders who came to the exhibit. We look forward to hosting many such D & T exhibitions, showcasing our students’ exceptional talents, and boosting confidence in their innovative ideas.
Grade 6 students making learning authentic
At B.D. Somani, we are staunch believers in Project Based Learning. Recently, our 6th grade students went on a museum trip, and used it as inspiration to propose business ideas, create artworks, and write magazine articles. Students summarised their 4-week long research project with presentations to panelists from the fields of Education, History, Art, Business, Investment Banking, and Startups. Curiosity, Collaboration & Courage shaped their ideas and propelled their activities, as they always do in our school.
