I"ll  bet you had no idea that the ALC has it's very own version of ELf ?!!?!!

If you didn't see our "ALC ELF" in your schools delivering goodies for all the good Administrators and Counselors, you missed out on quite a treat!  

Our Principal, Wade Tischner, was busy checking his list not only once, but checking it twice, to see who's been naughty or nice!

We hope you enjoyed his visit and we hope you know how much we here at the ALC, appreciate your support!

    The Advanced Learning Center was featured on the Front Page of the Daily Herald today. It's a great article about our Code Girl event we hosted yesterday, and featured the Christmas light show our Robotics students orchestrated for the Holidays.

  "THANK YOU"  to Lana Hiskey for contacting the Daily Herald. Also, a big "THANK YOU" to Shelby Slade for coming to interview the students and for writing up such a great article honoring the work the students here at ALC have accomplished.

Today, the Advanced Learning Center hosted 200 junior high-aged girls in a field trip where they participated in the Hour of Code. As a way to demonstrate how code and programming is used in different applications, participants experienced the light show created by the Engineering & Robotics students and were able to watch bracelets get 3D printed. All participants earned a certificate for completing the Hour of Code as well as receiving more information on how to further their computer science education at home and at school.

A LOT of work and preparation has gone in to the Robotics Department Light Show adorning the halls here at the ALC.  These few pictures are just a sneak peak on what you will see when you come to experience this light show first hand. It is definitely worth your time to come check out what has been going on in the halls here at the ALC.

We love having visitors here at the ALC. Today we were privileged to have three visitors from BYU, in our History and Psychology classes.  Savannah Burdine, Kayla Stewart and Ruth Bruce are part of the David O McKay Teaching Program and were observing classes, and even lead some of the discussions in the classes. 

It is  fun to meet new people and it is always great to interact with the colleges. 

 Thanks for coming today ladies. Good luck with your studies
