Dunes Academy Aau
Rather than serving purely as evaluation tools, both informal and formal evaluations are continuous, based on research, and geared towards encouraging students’ development and learning.
Science fairs are held annually by students in grades 1-5 at the Lower School. Students spend four to six weeks working through the scientific process, from asking a question to developing a prediction or hypothesis to conducting an experiment to analysing the results.
Students at Dunes Academy not only have access to interactive classroom projectors with document cameras and other group teaching tools in every classroom, but they also participate in a variety of projects that help them develop their technology skills. Robot mazes are a popular activity for 1st graders to practise their direction and measuring skills.
