The counselor, Ms.Natalie Grant went to a lot of work to make sure that the students here were well informed about all of the college options that are out there for the students here at the ALC. She had guest speakers, tons of swag and lots of information to give them. She visited the English classes and helped walk them through the process of applying for colleges. All in all, this week was a huge success.

 THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK MS. GRANT!!

A college education is the KEY to your future, which can be anything from a one-year certificate to a four-year degree and beyond. This week at the ALC, we are hosting our Utah College Application Week (UCAW), which acquaints all our students with the importance of preparing for and attending college.

At the ALC, we are specifically helping our seniors in our ENGL 1010 courses, to complete and submit at least one college application, as well as learn about college admissions, scholarships, and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The workshops were based on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education. In a robotics workshop, students faced several programming challenges. The final task was to have their “mBot” robot follow a curving black path. The team with the fastest robot advanced and raced other teams. The coveted prize was Fitbits for the fastest bot.

Medical Forensic Classes Get into Details

People learn in different ways – hearing, seeing or doing. 

Visual – You learn by seeing

Auditory – You learn by hearing

Kinesthetic – You learn by doing

If you are a Visual Learner, you will learn best if you can see it. You love images, posters, charts, videos, diagrams, etc., and you like to take notes to help you remember.

If you are an Auditory Learner, you learn best by listening. You love a good discussion and listening to interesting stories to help you remember.

AVIATION GETS DOWN TO THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THINGS

To understand how something works, sometimes you just have to go all the way back to the basics.

In Mr. Halls Avaition class, that is exactly what they did. In order to understand the airplanes they will someday be flying, They needed to understand all the pieces to the airplane and how they work. 

For the past few days the students have been learning about engines, and even had to build an engine starting from the first little nut and bolt ending with the finished product.
