Our Aviation and Collision Repair classes toured the Duncan Aviation Corporate Aircraft Maintenance Faculty today. It is a family owned and operated business since 1950. It is a beautiful brand new facility.  They showed the students the many things they offer corporate businesses that have planes. They can fuel, paint, build cabinets, any form of complete airplane retrofits that someone may want, they also service and bring any inspection items up to date.

Congratulations to Ally Young and Emily Morril for taking 1st place in Forensic Science at the Science Olympiad in Cedar City this past Saturday, April 9, 2022. 

Ally compared this event to a track meet.  She said that students choose three areas to compete in, and students then answer questions related to that area. 

In Forensic Science students were asked to analyze a crime scene, students were given a list of suspects that went with the crime scene and they had to determine who the criminal was.

Heart to Heart

Have you ever wondered what your heart looks like? 

Today in Anatomy and Physiology students had the opportunity to dissect pig hearts.  Pig hearts are the closest to human hearts allowing students to take a look at what their own hearts may look like.  Brian Blake had students look at the outside of the heart, and the inside of the heart. 

Students found valves, arteries, and veins of the heart.  Students had a lot of fun discovering what a real heart looks like.

What can you do with a bag of gummy bears, some duct tape, and some skewers?

Well, ALC students in the education class and engineering CAPS class are working together to create a human masterpiece. The students are working with the Gail Halvorsen foundation to create STEM-related learning stations for elementary-aged students. This creation can be used in several ways to teach about motion, wavelengths, and DNA strands. 

The students had a great time building it and showing it off! Great work ALC students.
