Science Exploration

The 8th grade recently completed a 2 1/2 day science exploration. After brainstorming about and narrowing down careers that involve science, students investigated what it might take to become a meteorologist or archaeologist. Students investigated courses that might be required, how and where one might complete an internship and which branches of science were involved.  Students then completed several experiments (finding relative humidity, creating hail, determining gender from bones, etc.) pertaining to their field and experienced the application of math in these fields.  The experience culminated with student presentations and an archaeology simulation.

Sixth and seventh grade students from Princeton Montessori School took part in the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN), serving as the delegates from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.  After a year of research, writing, learning, and preparation, fourteen students and three of their teachers journeyed to Brooklyn, New York and spent four days with close to a thousand other Montessori middle school students from all around the world.   While in New York, the students spent three days working on Model UN committees in which they worked on specific problems plaguing the world, such as small arms trafficking, childhood obesity, and nuclear security.

“Part of what made the Montessori Model UN experience so special for the students is that it emphasized peaceful resolution and cooperation over competition, as more traditional model UN programs sometimes do,” says Lisa Stolzer. “Many people do not know that Maria Montessori supported the work of the League of Nations and its successor, the United Nations, as a forum where peace could be created. She recognized that the hope for peace lay in the education of children.”
