The STEM Action Center is an incredible site for students, parents, and educators to gather and receive information about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. There is an interactive Curiosity Library containing videos, power points, podcasts, and webinars. Scholarship opportunities, web resources, ideas, contests, and company event information are all a part of what makes this such a great site.

Braden Jensen and Braeden Watson, in ALC’s Computer Programming classes, designed and programmed a client server application for MMHS’s dramatic presentation of “The Pirates of Penzance”. The application allowed the Sound Director and Soundboard Operator in the MMHS Tech Center (the Loft) to communicate with the Microphone Technician backstage, Braden Jensen. Breadon Watson programmed the Client Server; then Braden Jensen created everything else in the application. A local network the students created and existing local IP addresses allowed the computers to communicate with each other.

Utah College Application Week

Story by Anna Palmer

College is the key to a successful future. Whether you choose to earn a one-year certificate, a four-year degree, or a Ph.D, you need to look at which college would be the best fit for you. And because there are so many types of colleges and financial helps available, college can be a reality for everybody.

During the week of November 10-14, there will be many pre-registration activities available to high school seniors.  Informational materials and resources will be sent home to help students register for college.
