The 3rd and 4th grade students spent the day at White Pine Village seeing history in action! They experienced the village set in the days of the late 1800's to early 1900's. There were many interpreters on hand to teach the students all about flint knapping, loom weaving, spinning, storytelling, sawmill demonstrations and much more. What a fun and historic learning experience for all!

On Wednesday, 10/16/19, students in Mrs. Fatura's advanced chemistry class and Mr. Chye's coding class participating in a "Skype a Scientist" opportunity with Jeffery Schwartz. Jeffery is a nanoscientist who works for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His work focuses on controlling the ways atoms and molecules come together to form more complicated and useful structures. Jeffery states, "All around us, we see that nature can build incredibly complex structures, all on its own, and we study these natural methods of "molecular self-assembly." But we, as scientists and engineers, also try to devise our own clever ways of making nanoscale objects, like those present in computer microchips. This field is incredibly important in nearly all modern technology and I find it incredibly fascinating." It was another great opportunity for our students to learn about a growing field of study and see what job opportunities are available in science and technology.

On Tuesday, 10/1, Mrs. Fatura's STEM class competed in a Shark Tank style competition for the creation and design of a best new yard game. Students designed, built and tested their games. In addition, they had to think about profit margins, marketing, packaging and advertising their product. Thank you to Kathy Surd, Laura Nugent, Paul O'Grady, Glenn Beavis and Jean Russell who were our "shark" for the challenge. The winners were Brandon Macher, Mikaylyn Kenney, Campbell Miller and Shane Roberts for their game called "Chuck It". A close second was the game "Velthrow" with a team of Grace Powers, Paige Ruggles, Barbie Grondsma and Alex Drechen. It was a really fun experience to see the students innovate and problem solve. All of the groups did a fantastic job!
