BHMS Food Expo

Recently the 6th grade students at BHMS had a Food Expo, the culminating activity in their science Unit Challenge. The Unit Challenge asked students to educate their assigned characters, Carl and Mary, about digestion and help them solve their digestion problems. Throughout the unit, students have completed hands-on activities to gain experience and insight into the digestive system, constructed and used models of the digestive system, and developed arguments about appropriate food choices based on evidence and reasoning. 

They also learned how to optimize solutions following the Engineering Design Process and tied this to the MYP Design Cycle. They used constraints and criteria to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their possible solutions. They addressed their solutions' and changed them one variable at a time in the brainstorming phase until they created a solution that met ALL of the constraints and scored well on the criteria, including taste. In the end, all groups made smoothies that either helped their assigned characters, Carl or Mary, adjust their dietary intake to fix their digestive issues.
