It may sound like something out of a sci-fi film, but today our Junior Kindergarten and Preschool classes got to “see inside” the human body to explore the heart and digestive systems using 360-degree augmented reality!
Students were blown away to see an actual pumping heart, examine blood flow, and see where their food goes after they eat it! These amazing lessons happened during Mrs. Coleman’s STEAM class, using Virtuali-Tee tech by Curiscope.
Virtuali-Tee takes science to a new dimension by enabling students to learn about the human body ... on a human body! With augmented reality and amazing 3D learning experiences, our students can explore the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems with fully immersive 360 video.
They were in awe!! (And we were too, truth be told!)
by Ty Faulk, NCCS Upper School Bible Teacher
As an interdenominational school, North Cobb Christian School represents a wonderfully diverse mix of Christian traditions and denominations. For many of our students, Wednesday, 2/17/21, marked the beginning of a very special season of reflection and preparation called Lent, which commences on Ash Wednesday and lasts until Easter. This period of time is integral to the rhythms of the traditional church calendar (AKA, the Liturgical Year, which has four major periods: Lent, Easter, Advent, and Christmas).
In writing this, we simply want to help spread awareness of and appreciation for the beautiful diversity of faiths within our school family. We also want to invite you to participate with us in this intentional time of growth and spiritual reflection. To support you in this invitation, we have included some resources below, so you can participate with your family.
What is the meaning of Lent?
To put it simply, Lent, meaning “spring season” in Latin, is a time of intentional fasting (giving something up) to focus on our need for God and the cross of Jesus, so we can more greatly experience the celebration of the Resurrection (Easter). The Advent season focuses on waiting for Jesus, Christmas on the birth of Jesus, Lent on the cross of Jesus, and Easter on the resurrection of Jesus.
Who celebrates Lent?
At NCCS, some of our families practice Lent and others may not. Families that are Roman Catholic, Methodist, Anglican, Presbyterian, or Episcopal are more likely to practice Lent, but there is also a movement within many other denominations to be more intentional about the church calendar.
How do you celebrate Lent?
Below, we want to equip you with some resources (an article, a book, a devotional, and a playlist) to assist you in understanding the practice, help you lead your family in this time, and maybe even practice yourself! I hope these resources are beneficial as you and your family grow in Christ.

The Distinctive NCCS Upper School
Our distinctive Upper School philosophy can best be encapsulated by this statement from US Principal Megan Strange:
"We believe God intentionally created your children with unique gifts and apptitudes, and it is our joy to support them as they lean into those areas."
