CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Science - The Best Field Trip Ever
Everyone thinks that Science is difficult, but through hands-on and direct practical experience, it is pretty fun, surprising, and exciting. At Chesapeake Math & IT Academy (CMIT), we take pride in facilitating the best educational field trips for our students. On Wednesday, March 4, 2020, ninety-nine (99) students from 12th and 9th grades participated in different science activities. In retrospect, it was the BEST FIELD TRIP EVER. CMIT goes to Benjamin Franklin Institute, and this large, interactive science museum tends to ask scientific questions of why and how and lets our scholars see for themselves just what the answers are. We left at precisely six in the morning and had a stop-over breakfast at Maryland House for thirty minutes. By 9:30 am, our scholars were experiencing “the worst-case scenario” they could ever face in their life. It is a survival education; the concept is risk management during disasters, considering the most severe possible outcome that can reasonably occur in a given situation such as an avalanche, tornado, hurricane, or other natural calamities. Learning facts about the anatomy of the heart and the brain and their incredible characteristics - students enjoyed the hands on experience during dissection of the cow eye, sonograms, and venous blood x-ray. The power of the human mind was so incredible that our students had a broader understanding about its attributes. Since most are interested in sports, they loved the Sports Challenge exhibit, which invited them to explore courses like physics, chemistry, and biology via a range of athletic challenges. Moreover, there was Sir Isaac’s Loft, which offered clusters of experiments that illustrate different scientific ideas, some of them in aesthetically appealing ways. CMIT explored patterns made in light and sand, learned how levers and electricity work, and lifted their body weight. After so much hands-on activity, students were astounded by the IMAX movie about Superpower dogs. The curricular concept is to fuel our student’s knowledge about their love for veterinary medicine. We spent some time using our eyes on many Greatest Photographs of National Geographic artifacts and exhibits that were so special such as train, microscopes, and a 3-story pendulum; each panel offered a description of the pictures. More than each and everyone enjoyed the camaraderie of their schoolmates - we involved and allowed our scholars to use their hands again. This is the secret that drives and motivates them to learn. (CMIT webpage will update for more pictures and videos)

CMIT UPCOMING EVENTS (SCHOOLWIDE)
SCIENCE OLYMPIAD: The Art of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Skills and Academic Competition
Science education and literacy, with a focus on STEM areas, have been a midpoint of attention in CMIT Science Olympiad since 2017. Many have thought that Science Olympiad is a little competition, a club or a group of nerd people. Nevertheless, the truth is Science Olympiad is more than a race - it can benefit you to gain in-depth scientific knowledge as well as other skills that will be useful in college. Even though it is pretty "stressful," the competition involves one "big family" that nurtures and cares. You do not need to be an expert in a particular technical field to be a member of the Team. All you need is the amount of dedication, patience, and fire of spirit to focus. The years that I have been in CMIT, it is my pride and honor to be one of the coaches in the Science Olympiad—meeting dedicated students that go above and beyond - my hat is off to the following students who continually improve themselves to be a science expert. Haris Chaudhry; Kavyasri Gouda; Anthony Stills; Samuel Opoku; Carvengy Milfort; Samantha Obajolu; Ashley Tchokote; Ansharan Akbar; Omar Malash; Muneeb Sahibzade, Kaitlin Quarshie, Sarah Suleman, Isabella Obinna, Sapri Sise, Babatunde Morafa, Nigel Seymour, Velma Funebe, Nevaeh Cannon, Suhani Patel, and Christina Thomas. Alongside with their coaches, in an era of ubiquitous cell phones, these students create or discover a method, form, and devise other useful means to improve the machine, crane, aircraft, vehicle, and music technology. Despite all the deadlines with their very demanding courses, these students prepare themselves immensely before any peers to acquire knowledge in Astronomy, Medicine, Engineering, Physics, Music, Arts, and Chemistry.

HS BREAKING NEWS
One Week Applied Math Summer Program at Catholic University, DC June 21-26, 2020
From Catholic University This residential program is intended for rising high school freshmen, sophomore, juniors, and seniors as well as 2020 high school graduates looking for a pre-college experience. See our website here. (https://sites.google.com/cardinalmail.cua.edu/cua-summer-math/home) The program we are offering is Applied Math in Action!, an action-packed week with math sessions each day in subjects outside the normal high school curriculum, so they are accessible to all levels: cryptography, game theory, math modeling, & more, as well as invited speakers and other educational activities. It will also feature several fun excursions around Washington, D.C. and allow students to experience a week of college life on our beautiful campus. Because our math topics are outside the normal series of mathematics topics taught in high school, students do not need advanced coursework to participate, but only an interest in mathematics and STEM. More projects will be available for more advanced students. If you or a student would like more information, please see the flyer below or go to our website at math.cua.edu/applied-math-in-action. Please feel free to email us at math-in-action@cua.edu.
