Exhibitions were a hit!
Thanks to students’ and teachers’ tireless preparation, and to community members’ willing participation, TAF Academy students had their most successful exhibitions yet. Among the highlights were the sophomores’ “Unnatural Selection” debates, in which they revealed what they’ve learned in biology and humanities through fiery, well-informed debates weighing the pros and cons of using genetically-modified crops. In another exhibition, students taught origami and showed off models they’d created of Japanese apartments, telling visitors about the make-up of the apartments and furniture and what that says about Japanese culture. “I was impressed,” said Troy Hilton, who manages educational technologies at TAF Academy, “because they brought art and Japanese language and culture into one project, and it was engaging.”
Stay tuned for the next round of exhibitions, coming in January!
