An ALC Open House To Remember!

A huge thank you to everyone who made the ALC open house a success!  From prospective students to parents, siblings, and current students our building was overflowing with interest in the amazing courses available at The Advanced Learning Center.  Mr. Eastmond had his First Robotics club entertaining the masses, popcorn was served by Mrs. Ewell, and swag was provided by the U.S. Air Force Academy and Utah Valley University.  It was a fun and informational two days with teachers welcoming all into their classrooms to spotlight their programs and hands-on curriculum.

A murder victim was discovered along a roadside.  Police recovered carpet samples from the victim’s body.  It is speculated that the victim was brought to the location using a car belonging to one of the suspects.  Some of the carpet fibers from the floor of the car were transferred to the victim’s body.  Your task is to determine if the fiber found on the victim’s body is consistent with one of the carpet fibers taken from the cars of four different suspects.

The ALC's Aviation classes had the opportunity to hear presentations and ask questions from 2Lt Derrick Dye from Hill Air Force Base. 

2Lt Dye is a recent graduate of the US Air Force Academy and is the current USAFA liaison for Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Washington.  He was able to tell the students about the educational opportunities at USAFA and how students can apply if they are interested in attending college there.  He also told the students about his recent experiences beginning to fly in the Air Force.
