Explorations

Explorations are an integral part of our upper school experience. Each semester students select from a wide variety of project-based electives. Each subject is deeply rooted in developing skills our students will need to thrive in the 21st Century such as creativity, collaboration and communication. Some examples below:

Yearbook: Students have been working diligently on getting organized and designing this year's very special yearbook commemorating Sea Crest's 25th Anniversary!

LEGO Robotics: This course provides an introduction to robotics for students with no programming background using LEGO Robotics kits. They are learning to construct, control, and program these robots through investigative and exploration activities. Research projects are exposing the students to the engineering process.

Photography:

Chess Club:
More than just a game, chess provides many benefits beyond academics. Chess provides a tactical mindset that leads to knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. Whether they win, draw, or lose there is always an opportunity to learn and improve.

This year’s leadership class is embarking on a journey of being

Street Art:

How can art communicate and connect a community? Students are exploring the elements of street art by analyzing and designing street art pieces. Students are experimenting with graffiti, stickers, stencils, cartooning, and murals to produce personal and collaborative pieces that deliver a message or create an experience.

Dramatic Science:
Students got to choose, research, design and carry out a dramatic science demo! They are learning the chemistry or physics behind their demo, and designing the best way to safely wow their peers with both exciting spectacle and impressive knowledge.

Broadcast Journalism: Students started a Sea Crest television station. They are creating stories, reporting on the weather and sports, all the happenings at school, and then broadcasting it to the school and to parents.
