Videos of FWA in Action
Watch the videos below to see how Fort Worth Academy students experience learning by doing and challenge themselves to think outside the box.
In a combined science and English class project, Fort Worth Academy middle school students are learning about independent and dependent variables as they work in teams to modify cookie recipes, then learn how to collect data as they survey taste testers to see which cookies they like best, and finally use what they have learned about media bias and persuasion to create commercials for their experiment results.
Wild at FWA
The creation of our outdoor classroom was spearheaded by Megan Davis McConnell, FWA parent, Texas Master Naturalist, and instructor of our "Wild at FWA" elective class, and it's a beautiful location to be used by all students and teachers. One of the facts that makes the space interesting is that the stools that provide seating are made of wood harvested from a tree on campus that could not be saved after severe frost damage. Now "Wild" students are examining pieces of that tree in order to learn more about it!
