Charge Ahead--A Private School Blog



Chapin's Quiz Bowl team had a stunning showing at Nationals, going 4-4 in competition against the top teams in the nation. The journey isn't over yet. We still have one final tournament from our year-long monthly tournament in which Chapin A is once again playing for the top spot in our region. We also have four players, Shrihith, Varun, Arjun, and William who have qualified to represent the school on the New Jersey Quiz Bowl All-Star Team. Charge Ahead, Chapin Chargers!



 

Students studying science with hands on projects


Chapin School Princeton students “STEAM” ahead with their study of science, combining classroom work with hands-on creating and making in the Design Lab. It's the type of scientific study you can only find at Chapin School Princeton, one of the best private schools in New Jersey. 

8th-grade students celebrated the end of their physics unit by creating carnival-style games. Students analyzed their games to see how the laws of physics applied to the game.

7th-grade designed and built structures using principles of earthquake-resistant building design. Students tested their designs on a shake table. 



 

What defines a community? What are the roles people have in a community? These are just some of the questions Chapin School Princeton second graders explored in their study of three types of communities: rural, suburban, and urban. Working in collaborative groups to plan what should be in a community, students planned, designed, and built their community models using recyclable materials. This hands-on-learning truly helps them understand how STEM is used across multiple aspects of daily life.  When the models were built, students wrote a script for a day in the life of their community and, in the ultimate step, program a DASH robot to navigate the model replica of their community. As students at the best private school in the Princeton area, Chapin students use hands-on learning, STEM, and collaborative work to better understand the larger global community. They are ready to charge ahead into an ever-changing future.
