Last week, the boys in Grade 7 filled out an online questionnaire, reflecting on their experiences working on their Wonder Expo project. Have a look at some of these infographics that report what the students said:
Some of the boys followed up this reflection with a one-on-one interview with Mr. Weber. This video actually played during the Wonder Expo presentation event this morning. Many of the boys, teachers, and parents commented how interesting it was to see what some of the (other) students had to say about this experience. Check out the video for yourself below:

Today’s the big day! All term, the Grade 7 boys have been working on their Wonder Expo projects. The Wonder Expo is a revamped version of the Science Fair – we’ll write more about the process later.
But for now, enjoy some of the fabulous projects and tweets from today’s event!
“I used to see a butterfly in my mind’s eye every time I heard the word transformation, but life has schooled me. Transformation isn’t a butterfly. It’s the thing before you get to be a pretty bug flying away. It’s huddling in the dark cocoon and then pushing your way out.”
~ Dear Sugar
“You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion – for yourself, and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul.”
~Lupita Nyong’o (2014 ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar’ winner for 12 Years a Slave)
