What's White, Brown and Green All Over?
The new plants at the ALC!
Did you know that having plants in the classroom and learning environment can boost test scores, reduce sick leave hours, increase creativity and improve mental wellbeing? #PlantsDoThat
“When plants are around, students are just smarter and pay more attention,” says Dr. Charles Hall, Ellison Chair, Texas A&M.
In Architecture CAPs, they have had the amazing opportunity to work with architects such as Wes Christensen and John Shepherd on different projects.
Some of the projects this year include a Roxberry Juice building and restrooms for Salem Hills High School tennis courts. They have also had the opportunity as a class to dive in a little deeper on how to create technical drawings when they produced documents for a Warehouse.
One of the programs that we have at the ALC is our Educators Rising Club. It is a club for students interested in becoming teachers. They have a monthly activity after school focused on exploring a career in teaching, assisting teachers in the classroom, and learning fun, interactive ways to teach.
For those of you that missed the early story about the new exciting program the ALC just started, the ALC now has REPAIRWARE.
REPAIRWARE is housed here. Mr. Talbot's advanced students will be running this repair shop.
Some of the things that will be available for repair are: Desktops/Upgrades
Laptops/ Upgrades, Chromebook Repairs, and Tablet/Phone repairs.
If you want to build some amazing things, you'll definitely want to check out Mr. Hawks's construction courses.
In Carpentry 1 (UVU CMGT 1190, CMGT 1220) students will participate in the layout, building, and coordination of residential construction using hand and power tools.
