Morgan Book Project
n partnership with the Morgan Library, all of our 9th grade students write, illustrate, and bind their own books, in the style of Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts. Between units on ancient texts like The Odyssey, Sundiata, The Monkey King, and The Arabian Nights, students tell their own hero’s journey in the books they create. The students make their own paint by grinding traditional pigment sources such as malachite, saffron, and insects. They complete their illustrations with 22-karat gold leaf. Some of our students were honored at the Morgan Book Project Ceremony on May 12, 2023. The work of the following students will be displayed in the library until August 20, 2023: Alvi Mahtab, Qilin Guo, and Daniela Apanco.

AP Biology Research Presentation (May 13, 2022)
This year, our AP Biology classes have been working on a yearlong research project, analyzing how the life cycle of mealworms is affected by the consumption of styrofoam. We were funded this year by the NY Academy of Sciences Scientist in Residence (SiR) program, and a group of students will present our research to SiR scientists from across the city. These students chose to make a video of this presentation instead of presenting live, and they worked really hard with me to analyze our data, write a script and other materials for the video, record it all, and narrate it, all while also preparing for our AP exam this week!

Trigonometry Project (April 7, 2022)
History: The clinometer is a tool used by plumbers, miners, sailors and many others to measure angles of elevation. The clinometer was invented in 1989 and is still used today to measure the heights of objects that difficult to measure.
Purpose: In this trigonometry project, students constructed clinometers using protractors, straws, paper clips, a small weighted object and string. They worked in pairs to indirectly measure the heights of tall objects in the auditorium such as the balcony, windows, and projector using trigonometry.
