Here are a few academic snapshots from an enlightening Spring Semester at Hudson College:
Grade 10 Computer Technology students created photomask stencils to spray-paint their own designs after learning how computers store data using high and low electrical signals and digital images as a series of numbers, with values representing a colour for each pixel. Guest speakers from the Silicon Valley-based microprocessor giant AMD also spent time with the class, sharing fascinating experiences from their development of microchips for PlayStation and Xbox.
In Grade 11 World Religions, Hudson students were introduced to different ways of seeing the world and enjoyed visiting several places of worship. Beyond studying the history, beliefs, rituals and practices of diverse religions, they examined how religions have influenced the modern world and pop culture, opening their minds to the ways in which religious thought continues to shape society.
Grade 11 Physics students had the unique opportunity to develop an engaging experiment in optics with a guest teacher from the University of Toronto. Working with liquids of different densities, students explored light refraction and discussed the wave-particle duality of light.
We’re excited to see our students carry these insights into the Fall Semester!
