Little Brains

The ALC students taking anatomy and physiology through Weber State University put their brains to work this week.  They were tasked to flag all of the anatomy and physiology learned over the past couple of weeks, in preparation for their exam.  The sheep's brain dissection was a great way for students to get away from a traditional lecture and get some hands on engaged learning.

Engineering & Legos

Submitted by anna.palmer on Thu, 01/16/2014 - 14:41

Mrs. Massic's Engineering students participated in a Lego modeling activity today. The object of the activity was to test each team's ability to work as a group, rapidly collect information, plan an assembly process and build a model from an assembly plan. Everyone had to comply with a number of rules, and they were given 30 minutes to prepare a formal assembly plan for a Lego hotel. Teams then used the plans to re-build the Lego hotels. Fun? Challenging? What do you think?
