Careening Coasters

The Pre-Engineering class has been investigating the civil engineering discipline. In addition to researching various careers and opportunities related to civil engineering, students completed a civil engineering-related project. This year's class was given various supplies and instructions for building a marble roller-coaster. Using knowledge from previous math and science classes, they were to build and calculate how fast their marble traveled and identify the kinetic, potential, and mechanical energy of their final designs.

Film Students go to Sundance

Story by Brandon Arnold, Pictures by Francesca Rotolo

Mr. Arnold’s Film Production classes took a field trip to the Sundance Film Festival last week. They watched films from Israel/Palestine, China, Japan, and Minnesota. They also ate food from Mexico, Belgium, and Germany. In doing so, students gained insights into other ways of life around the world, like a Palestinian double agent working for the Israeli spy agency. Or like boys in China who have been sent to rehabilitation centers for kids with internet addictions.
