Health Science Students Excel on State Skills Test

Submitted by preston.powell on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 18:51

The pre-medical health science students had some celebrating to do at
the end of term 2.  At the end of the medical terminology course each
year, students have the chance to receive a certificate of proficiency
from the state of Utah.  This certificate can be included in their
college applications, scholarship packets, and resumes.   Needless to
say, it is a great accomplishment!  Mr. Curtis challenged the medical
terminology classes to receive proficiency certifications on their
end-of-course state skills test.  They decided that if eighty percent
of the class became proficient in medical terminology, they would
celebrate with a waffle party.  They exceeded the challenge and more

A new and exciting year at the ALC

Submitted by preston.powell on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 16:42

This week students returned to the ALC from Christmas break. Our students have had a great 2012 year.

The film students created several short films including "Swamp Date." They filmed the State Championship football game. And have produced many school highlight videos.

Students in Mr. Curtis' class have participated in mock crime scene investigations and the processing of evidence. They have had hands on experience in many labs and exercises. One of which was the dissection of cow femurs .

In Mr. Eastmond's robotics class students built robots that move in all directions and utilize a mechanical arm that will clamp onto any object it can fit in its claw.

ALC Pre-Med Health Science Students Dissect Femurs

Submitted by preston.powell on Tue, 12/11/2012 - 12:18

Recently, pre-med health science students have gained valuable hands on understanding of the long bone anatomy. Mr. Curtis acquired a bundle of cow femurs that his students used to complete their human tissue and skeletal units. He split them into groups and had them identify multiple tissue types, all of the long bone structures, and had them discuss some of the relevant disorders. Who would have thought that a femur was so complex?
