Some impressive 3D designs!

“Museum Madness” in World History! At the completion of the study of the Roman Empire, students presented a 3D image of their given topic, as well as a 1-2 page explanation of the impact and importance it had on Roman society. During their presentation students attempted to convince the class that their exhibit should be a part of the Roman Museum.

Atom Particle Lab

Charged particles making the tinsel move!

In Intro to Chemistry freshmen students learned that they can strip the outermost particles of an atom (electrons) from one substance (hair and a piece of fake fur) simply by friction and observe the effect of those charged particles on other items. In the images below, you can see they made the tinsel move toward the acrylic rod.

They also made a soda can follow a balloon and bits of confetti jump onto a comb!

Jr. Scientists in action.

Volleyball won a big game against Horizon Christian last Thursday night. Westside came out strong and took the first two sets easily, before Horizon fought back to even the score 2 – 2. The last set was a tight match all the way until the end when Westside pulled away at the end, winning the final game 15-13.

Kendra Zuckerman led the team on offense with 10 kills, and Emma Molony led the team from the service line with 4 aces. Susannah Fischer headed up the defense with 19 digs, and our setters Lia Reid and Haley Shaver put up 15 and 13 assists, respectively. It was an all around team effort with every player contributing to the big win.

US Government Survey Project

Posted on:

Survey topic review and selection.

US Government is starting a survey (public polling) project where students create background questions about the respondents and issue questions on their topic. Examples are raising minimum wage, gov’t health care, euthanasia, Native American names for sports teams, should hospitals have to publish their fees?, etc.  The students go door-to-door to get 20 responses, tally them, analyze for similarities and differences and speculate as to why people might respond differently.

Serious research!
