ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT DESIGN RAT TRAP CARS

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Fri, 11/20/2020 - 11:19

If you have any pet rats that may need some transportation, look no further than Mr. Barlow's Engineering classes. His students were tasked with a project that produced many different options for any "Rats" that may be in the market for a car. 

They were very specifically designed cars that had to meet many different requirements while the students were learning about the principles of mechanical advantage paired with kinematic equations. There are few projects better suited than the classic Mousetrap Cars. However, they upped the to level up with some more powerful equipment – RAT TRAPS!

The student's tasks were these:

It was such a great sight to see the halls full of students that dressed up in respect for those who have fought for our freedoms. 

Huge shout out to the youth for showing us how to show respect.  It was an amazing sight to see.

 Below is ONE of the small groups that showed up today to honor and respect all of those who have sacrificed so much for us to enjoy the freedoms we have today.

National School Psychology Week 2020

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Tue, 11/10/2020 - 14:20

Nebo celebrates all our school psychologists, and all they do for Nebo students.

During the week of November 9-13, 2020, schools throughout the United States will celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive. 

This year’s theme is “The Power of Possibility.” The word “possibility” implies hope, growth, resilience, and renewal. The possibility suggests that even something as small as a seed can grow into something magnificent. The word “power” implies that things can and will happen. When we focus on what is possible, we have hope that students will grow, thrive, and bloom.

Thank you Nebo psychologists for all you do for our students.

ALC STUDENTS BUILD HOUSES

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Mon, 11/09/2020 - 11:37

I am not sure if very many people know about two of our amazing classes here at the ALC. The Carpentry I Class and the Carpentry II class.

These classes are taught by Mr. Tom Hawks who is such a great teacher to these students.

In this two-course series, students will learn to layout, fabricate, erect, install and repair wooden structures and fixtures using hand and power tools.  Includes instruction in common systems of framing, construction materials, estimating, blueprint reading, concrete placing, siding, and mechanical systems.

STRAWBERRY DNA

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Thu, 11/05/2020 - 15:24

Ms. Hartvigsen's Health Science class got busy extracting DNA from strawberries the other day.

 Why would you use strawberries to extract DNA from? The answer is simple. Ripe strawberries are an excellent source for extracting DNA because they are easy to pulverize and contain enzymes called pectinases and cellulases that help to break down cell walls. And most important, strawberries have eight copies of each chromosome (they are octoploid), so there is a lot of DNA to isolate.

The students had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
