STEM Drones/Aviation Students
STEM Drones/Aviation students had an inquiry activity on weight and balance in aviation to explore principles. With meter sticks and masses, students investigated weight distribution and the effects on the stability of planes and drones. Students determined the center of gravity for the meter stick and collected data on the distances required to balance two uneven masses. The data was utilized to calculate the moment, which is the tendency of an object to rotate. Students linked this motion to see-saws during the lab investigation. Through calculations, students were able to determine why the masses balanced out. The activity allowed students to apply principles of weight and balance to real-world scenarios with planes and drones. The calculations and topics are part of the preparation for the Part 107 Content Knowledge exam.
Gateway Book Club Visited the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society's Old City Adoption Center
On Tuesday, November 14th, the Gateway Book Club visited the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society's Old City Adoption Center, as a reward for raising more than $1000 for PAWS! The students were able to interact with adorable adoptable cats Annabelle, Juno, Maia and Kitster, and learn about the great work PAWS does saving Philadelphia's homeless and unwanted animals. With an extra stop at the Franklin Fountain for a delicious treat, the students enjoyed the rewards of community service and a job well done!

Jack Patrick was republished in Follow South Jersey

This week, the middle school students will be piloting a new program called adaptive scheduler. This new program is designed to enhance CHOMP Time by giving students choice over where they go during that block of time. Academic support will still be available for students who need extra help or to make up assignments.
