The International School Nido de Aguilas


New ASA: Nido Electric Vehicle Workshop

A new After School Activity for students in grades 8-12 will harness their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math. Led by Nido faculty Martin Sanchez, the Electric Vehicle Workshop will take place over two semesters in the Makerspace.

This course provides instruction in how to build an electrical vehicle with the objective of finishing with a working EV car. It will have duration of two semesters, consisting of two classes per week. Two teachers will carry out each class. The first semester is designed to instruct students with a basic knowledge of electricity, components used in an electrical vehicle, and basic programming. Students will work in groups of no more than three to complete arduino projects, learning and reinforcing concepts of mathematics, physics, electricity, chemistry, and design, as well as encouraging safety, creativity, innovation and ingenuity. The first semester's goal is to learn electricity and electronics with hands-on arduino projects, to end with a circuit board representing an electrical vehicle in small scale.

The second semester is designed to guide and instruct students to allow them to use their newly acquired knowledge to design and build an electrical vehicle. This will allow the student to truly learn and understand by applying what was learned in the first semester to a tangible project usable in everyday life. Concepts like sustainable transportations, eco-friendly products, and pollution in major cities will be discuss and debated in classes. Through hands-on workshop mode stations of small groups, students will learn basic mechanical knowledge and the exchange of I.C.E. parts for electrical components. Reinforcing teamwork, students will achieve in building the car together. The students will keep a journal and prepare a portfolio of their work. At the end of the second semester the students will have the satisfaction of having built an electrical vehicle that they will be able to test.

Welcome Back from MS Principal Shawe

I trust that your child enjoyed the summer break – traveling, reading (I hope!), sleeping a bit later – and that she/he returns home this week with a huge smile about the start of the new semester.

Welcome Back from ES Principal James

I am eager to greet students and families on the first day and hear all about the memories that were made during the summer vacation.

Welcome Back from EYS Principal Cota

I hope that you all had a wonderful summer of spending time with family, relaxing and reconnecting with one another in a rejuvenating environment.
