The ALC ACE (Architecture, Construction and Engineering) club enjoyed an amazing field trip this week.
 
Our first stop was at the shipping container plaza in Springville. One of the projects the students will complete this year is building their own shipping container creation. The students discussed different possibilities for their own creations as they marveled at this unique plaza. 
 
Our next stop was to visit the Utah School for the Deaf and Blind.

Kay Tischner, Tischner Ford Donates Car to ALC Auto Students

Submitted by amy.ewell on Tue, 02/23/2021 - 15:44

Kay Tischner has been investing in the education of Nebo School District students most of his life. Although he is retired from Tischner Ford in Santaquin and from the Nebo School District Board of Education, he is still looking for ways to be of service. Kay recently donated a car to the Advanced Learning Center Automotive Shop. This donation will provide hundreds of hours of hands-on learning experiences for Nebo School District students.

Nebo School District and the ALC are fortunate to have great supporters like Kay, the Tischner family and Tischner Ford. The ALC students and staff are very grateful for this support. Thank you Kay and Tischner Ford of Santaquin!

HAIR, HAIR, HAIR, EVERYWHERE

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Tue, 02/16/2021 - 10:13

Once again, Ms. Hartvigsen's Class had another out-of-this-world lab.

Her Medical Forensic Classes were able to do a lab where they compared different types of hair.

There was any, and every, type of hair that you could imagine in that room.  Students had fun comparing animal hair with human hair.  They also made casts of hair to see the cuticle in the hair. 

Both can be used in an investigation to exclude suspects. 

WHAT A GREAT WAY TO LEARN!

Who knew hair could be so exciting?!

I submit that it makes everyone happy. It makes food taste better, it makes your drive to work better, it makes grocery shopping better, the list goes on and on. I ask as many as will hear, to join me in taking up arms in the crusade of good branding and good design so that all of us will be able to live in a happier world!"

Mr. Halley showed students that if they want to build a brand they need to:
