As a work originally intended for the Church, […]
Seniors built bridges out of wood and glue as part of their physics assignment during Project Week. This week, they tested them to find out which bridge was the most efficient in design and strength. The strongest bridges held 30+ pounds.
The 8th grade girls are learning all about earthquakes, fault zones, and types of seismic waves. Today, they used spaghetti and marshmallows to build earthquake proof towers and then tested the strength of their structures with a shake table.
Some glimpses of the fun from last month’s Project Fair! Seventh and eighth grade students presented their work and fielded questions from friends, family, and students from the upper grades. Seventh graders research an endangered species and build a diorama of the animal and its habitat. Eighth graders build on their study in Medieval History […]
This week marks our beloved Metaphysical Pursuit competition! The 11th grade beat the 10th grade today with an exciting last question wager. Final match ups will take place during lunch tomorrow All grades compete for Quest points in this annual trivia event. Questions are compiled by the faculty and are drawn from the Trinity curriculum, […]
How do we prevent noise damage during rocket launches? What are the differences between a rocket, a space shuttle, and a satellite? Lieutenant Colonel Heather Rowe of the U.S. Space Force answered these and many other questions during her presentation and talk with the eighth graders this week.

It’s been an exciting week of field trips for the eighth, eleventh, and seventh grades! The eighth graders took at tour of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception with a local architect who specializes in church architecture. They also got a chance to play their recorders inside the church.
Some moments of fun from this week’s physics lab. Using stopwatches and sticky notes, the juniors tracked the motion of motorized carts and collected data. From here, groups calculated the velocity of their carts, compared their data, and modeled possible collision scenarios with MATLAB.
