In the Materials and Processes class, students were prompted by the question, "What could we design/create that reuses materials?" Students then went through the design process to brainstorm as many ideas as possible. The students narrowed down which ideas they would like to further develop. Students participated in various critique sessions with peers in order to make their idea better. Finally, students presented their ideas to a board of "investors" to practice presentation skills and get additional feedback.

ALC Films students attended a viewing of "Racing Extinction" recently at Sundance. Students were able to meet the director of this film, Louie Psihoyos, who also directed “The Cove” which was at Sundance a few years ago. What a great opportunity for our Film students.

Darrel Hammon, Senior Director of Community College Programs at UVU, announced last week just how much Concurrent Enrollment students saved over the 2013-2014 school year. By taking concurrent enrollment classes during high school, students saved 8.2 million dollars in college tuition costs. What a savings, what an opportunity! At $5 per credit hour, concurrent enrollment (college credit earned while in high school) courses save each student hundreds of dollars in college tuition.
