At MMA, we know experiential learning, which is a form of hands on learning, is the best way for our cadets to retain their knowledge. This week, our cadets experienced learning through this method and it certainly seemed like a fun time was had by all.
In the ESL (English as a Second Language) class, the cadets tested their knowledge of metric units by measuring and weighing various everyday objects such as coins, textbooks, and liquids. Participating in hands-on labs reinforce their science vocabulary words while strengthening their English skills.
This year in Biomed I class, cadets will review the mysterious death of Anna Garcia. Over the past two weeks, cadets have begun to analyze the evidence at the crime scene, including identifying unknown fingerprints, pills, hair, and blood. They have also conducted a blood splatter analysis to determine the height that the victim fell at the crime scene. Throughout the year, they will have to determine her cause of death.
Our teachers at MMA continue to get more creative with integrating experiential learning into the classrooms and by the look on the students faces, it is safe to say it is cultivating a dynamic learning environment for our cadets. If you feel this type of learning would benefit your child, contact us today to schedule a tour.
