BHS Students at CAU
The BHS AEROSPACE Engineering Classes took a recent field trip to visit CAU. According to PLTW teacher, Don Wilmot, "It was very informative and the CAU staff was amazing at answering all the questions. Not only did the students all get to see many of the very things we learn about in class, but several of them said things like 'I never knew about this career,' and 'I might have just changed my career plans.'" Pictured left: Everyone in their safety vests before they walked out on the Flight Line and got to see a real plane up close and personal.
Drillers chalk it up at Via Arte!
Several BHS art students participated in Bakersfield's annual Via Arte held at The Marketplace on October 13-15. Student artwork was on full display over the weekend-long chalk drawing event and many staff and students stopped by to check out their impressive work. Way to go Drillers!
