This fun combination of hardware and software design features robot challenges such as maze games and bot battles and culminates with a collaborative competition. Learning themes include mechanical engineering, circuits, physics, robotics, and computer programming. The mBot features an Arduino brain, a microcontroller that is a fundamental computer component in robotics, the "Internet of Things", smart devices, and wearable electronics. Engineers will program the mBot, first in Scratch, a simple drag-and-drop, color-coded programming editor created by MIT to teach skills and concepts in programming, and advance into coding in Arduino, a C derivative that is an industry-standard, real-word computer programming language. Engineers may also be able to explore Bluetooth capabilities, the use of sensors, and further customizations of their bot that they can take home to continue the playing, coding, and learning.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CLUBS

ISB offers a variety of after-school and free-period activities to support and enhance the personal, social, emotional, physical, and creative growth of our Middle School students. Sample offerings are listed below.

STUDENT COUNCIL

led by Rotana Suy & Danielle Valenti

Students can develop leadership skills and learn about fundraising to help their local and global community. The Middle Student Council is comprised of four executive positions and eight class representatives. Meetings take place once a week during lunch throughout the year. They help plan fun activities and provide volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

DEBATE CLUB

led by Alejandro Avalos

Students can develop leadership and communication skills as they learn about and debate issues surrounding current events.

YEARBOOK

led by Alicia Smith

Students will develop their design and technology skills and use their creativity as they put together the ISB yearbook. Middle School students can earn community service hours for working on the yearbook. Meetings take place once a week for 10 weeks. Band members are also encouraged to join the Yearbook Club after band practice ends. To register your student, please contact Crystal Fernandez at cfernandez@isbrooklyn.org or follow the link.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETICS

International School of Brooklyn offers three athletic seasons for Middle School students, including two team sports and one individual club sport. This year, ISB is offering soccer (fall), basketball (winter), and track club (spring). The Athletics department aims to develop athletes who demonstrate good sportsmanship by showing respect to teammates, officials, and opponents. The ISB Dragons are part of a middle school athletic league called the MSAL. ISB organizes soccer and basketball games with a large community of independent schools, including schools from both Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Soccer

ISB Dragons soccer meets for three practices per week. During these sessions, students practice various techniques that improve their ability to play soccer. Students work on footwork, dribbling, passing, strategy, and teamwork during this fall season. Team members scrimmage each practice, and games are scheduled with other schools for interscholastic competition.

Basketball

ISB Dragons basketball meets for three practices a week. Student athletes run drills and activities that progressively teach the fundamentals of basketball. Skills that are focused on include agility, hand-eye coordination, ball handling, passing, catching, flexibility, conditioning and teamwork. Basketball can help develop cardiovascular endurance and develop both upper and lower body strength. Students have fun, socialize, and build teamwork. Strong relationships translate into good health. Exercising in a group also tends to lead to better continued participation. Played alone or in groups, basketball is a great sport to learn.

Track Club

Student-athletes have the opportunity to learn about the importance of cardiovascular endurance, such as their heart rate, running capacity, and how to maintain good pace when jogging. Different obstacles will be introduced to motivate and improve their abilities. A Dragons customized T-shirt will be provided to each participant.

As a P.E Teacher and Coach, I encourage students that plan to continue playing sports like soccer and basketball to join the track club.

The Design Classroom Becomes a 3D Makerspace for the 8th Grade Model Chair Project

During the first semester, the 8th Grade students started a unit on three-dimensional design. The project required students to design chairs, first using two and three-dimensional drawing skills, and later transferring their ideas into a three dimensional modeling program called “SketchUp”. Their final assessment for the unit was the finished 3D chair.

Inside ISB’s Math Program

On Wednesday, November 15, over 40 parents gathered in our Cafeteria for a morning presentation about the math program at ISB. Matthew Stokes (ISB Math Coordinator and 8th Grade Math Teacher) was joined by Lauren Cantor (5th Grade Head Teacher and English Language Coordinator), Cristina Dominguez-Delgado (1st Grade Head Teacher) and Molida Khuon (3rd Grade French Head Teacher) to explain ISB's approach to mathematics instruction from Lower School through Middle School. A video recap is available here.

Meet the Booklets: A New Era at ISB’s Library

“The Booklets” is the newest initiative from Maria Falgoust, ISB’s Librarian and literary impresario. In Maria’s words, The Booklets are “library ambassadors” – a group of a dozen or so Middle School students who have elected to devote their Tuesday lunch periods to planning activities, envisioning new campaigns, and delegating tasks for the week ahead — all in the name of fostering a fresh, student-driven appreciation of the school Library and all it can offer the community. The Library is not exactly desperate for a P.R. bump; since its move from the Annex to its new capacious digs last year, Maria has seen her core group of patrons steadily expand, with everyone from Middle School students to Preschool families taking advantage of the Learning Commons’ unique space in the hours before and after school for reading, studying, and unwinding. But ask any member of The Booklets, and they will say this current success is only the beginning. When pressed about her goals for the year, 6th Grader Margaux A. was unflagging in her resolve to “make everyone want to come to the Library.”
