Intro to Engineering Design classes just finished up a section on design engineering. They were challenged on designing/building roller coasters and designing dog/cat houses that will be donated later this spring. We also had the opportunity to go to Stevens Industries. Huge thank you to Stevens Industries for welcoming our classes over so we could learn more about design engineering and autocad. We are very appreciative for the donation of lumber for our cat/dog house project.

Mrs. Thompson’s Physical Science students recently designed and built mousetrap cars. Students had to design and construct a car that was powered solely by one mousetrap. The cars needed to travel 20 feet. Students learned the importance of potential and kinetic energy and how energy relates to force and motion. Our top five mousetrap car distances were: Bryce Niebrugge @ 74 feet, Mathew Habing @ 67 feet, Adrienne Koester @ 65 feet, Gavin Althoff @ 63 feet, and Ali Bloemer and Emily Meyer @ 60 feet.

Just a reminder that the Class of 2023 can stop by the high school office to pick up their 2022-2023 yearbook if they haven't already done so. If another person picks up the yearbook, they must sign next to the student's name.
