U.S. history students at THS were studying some of America's famous inventors. In that same spirit, they were assigned to "invent" something we could use today. Pictured below are some of the "prototypes" that were created. Just some of the inventions included are laser-guided golf clubs, glasses that allow the blind to see, and a minivan that can avoid traffic by flying like a helicopter (pictured in flight below).

Mrs. Thompson’s Physical Science students recently participated in an Egg Drop Challenge. Students had to use problem-solving strategies and a limited amount of household items to design and build a carrier to protect a raw egg from breaking when dropped. We dropped our eggs from approximately 20 feet. Our students had fun learning about the engineering design process and almost all of our groups saved their egg!
