Homework = Tech Time

Reading teachers will continue the new reward system for doing homework! The Homework Punch Card will be handed out by reading teachers only. If all homework is correctly completed for each subject, then one punch will be earned per subject. These punches will be given on Fridays by core subject teachers. When 5 punches have been earned, the card can be exchanged for a FREE TECH "MONDAY" pass! That's right...electronics can be used on Mondays as a reward for being awesome students! :)

Cool Website of the Week


Roller Coaster Creator

This website allows people to combine their knowledge of science with curiosity and problem solving. Students will build their own roller coaster; adding loops, ups and downs, and even working with the cars on the tracks. Students will learn the value of potential energy and how that translates into kinetic energy, as well as the value of mass and velocity. The creator has you design the coaster, then actually runs the coaster through the track! Did it work or will you need to tweak it?!?

P.S. The Jason Project runs this website. This group uses scientific research about teaching science and turns that knowledge into cool things!
