The Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drones) class has been learning the FAA regulations to fly UAS.  At the end of the course, the students will be able to take their FAA Remote Pilot License Test.

This past week the students from the Aviation class took a break from the book work to learn about the forces that allow aircraft to fly and experiment with paper airplane drones. 

The students designed their own paper airplanes and then fitted them with PowerUp 3.0 drones.

Many students don't have the smoothest experience when going through school. That's where a school counselor comes into play—helping to ease students of all levels (from elementary school to college) through these often rocky years.

School counselors are trained to give valuable assistance to students, helping them with their academic goals, as well as their social, personal, and career development. With their help, students can navigate problems a bit easier and with confidence.

Here at the ALC, we have amazing counselors.

Hair, Hair, everywhere

 Besides color,  did you know that hair is very different from one person to the next?

Hair can be used as forensics class evidence because of its unique characteristics.

Students in the ALC Medical Forensics class studied human hair and a variety of animal hairs.

Students found out that animal hair is very different from human hair, and that each animal's hair is very different from the previous animal.

It was interesting to see the difference for these students.

How Does Blood Spatter Help Solve A Crime?

 Blood droplets are acted upon by forces other than gravity, such as being cast off of a weapon or being sprayed from a victim.

It is possible to determine the location of a victim, the type of weapon used, and the force used in a crime by examining the shape and size of these droplets.
