New Simulator Mission Takes Students around the Globe
Students in Mrs. Baughman and Mrs. Feeney's classes experienced the Countdown Mission in the IKS Highlander during the last week of September. The Countdown Mission is a new mission to the simulator this year and tied in perfectly with the geography content in the social studies classes. Students worked together to travel around the earth while locating a sunlight-inhibitor device. They had to work as a team to communicate with the appropriate continents and gather clues to the next step in their mission. In the Mission Ops space, students created paper mache globes that are now hanging in the social studies classrooms. The new mission is one of several new missions that are being introduced in the IKS Highlander this school year.
