8th Grade Field Trip

The OA-BCIG 8th grade talented and gifted students traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota for their educational field trip on April 6th and 7th, 2017.  The students raised all the funds for their trip by holding a soup supper and a gift basket chance booth.  The students researched and planned their trip.  They visited the Mill City Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Trapped Puzzle Room, U.S. Bank Stadium, and Sea Life Aquarium.  They took part in many exhibits, explorations, and behind the scene tours.  The students were challenged to use clues and codes to escape the Trapped Puzzle Room in 60 minutes or less.
This was an outstanding learning experience for the 8th graders.  The 8th graders attending the trip were:  Kelton Bendixen, Truman Clark, Kylee Dausel, Zach Dunker, Cade Ernst, Lillian Hoffman, Joie Matthies, Garrett Nichols, Emma Schirrmacher, Brandon Schmidt, Elle Schroeder, Eric Sibenaller, Trust Wells and Anna Winterrowd.  Mrs. Melissa Jensen and Mr. Phillip Jensen chaperoned the trip.  Thank you to all who participated in the fundraisers to make this trip possible.

Family Challenge Night
On Thursday, March 2nd the OA Elementary and OA-BCIG Middle School Talented and Gifted program held their Family Challenge Night.  The goal of Family Challenge Night is for families to participate in fun engineering design challenges.   Students also have a chance to share about the talented and gifted program.  The night is run by the 8th grade TAG students and their instructor, Mrs. Jensen.  This year there were three rotations:  a basketball challenge, a space lander challenge and sharing/trivia game.  All challenges were STEM related.  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  STEM activities create critical thinkers and encourage innovation.  At the end of the night, all forty families gathered in the gym to award those who had been the most successful at the challenges.  Families had a great time cooperating and working together to achieve their goals.
