- CLASSROOM SPOTLIGHT -
ROVER MISSION TO MARS
We currently have a new Rover, Perseverance, on Mars to help find the best location to send humans to Mars and be able to live there for 6 months. Due to the distance and positions of Mars and Earth, there are delays anywhere from 5-20 minutes in receiving information from the Rover to Earth. Essentially this is like driving blindfolded.
To experience the challenges in these Missions, the students team up and plan out their own Mission. Half the team will take measurements on distances from each location. The other half of the team will test their "rover" on how fast it travels in a certain amount of time. The team will then get together and collaborate on the best way to get their Rover to the desired location. Not being able to see their Rover they must drive their Rover to the locations. They can ask for their Rover to send only 3 pictures to see where they are within 5 minutes.
Thanks Ms. Brown!!!

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
The Western Undergraduate Exchange allows students to attend out-of-state schools in western states at just 1.5x the cost of resident tuition instead of the much higher non-resident tuition. For example, if you wanted to attend Colorado State University, you could pay the WUE tuition of $18,369 per year instead of the out-of-state tuition of $28,147! Or how about paying $5,895 per year instead of $10,350 to attend the University of Hawaii Maui College? Click here for more information about the WUE program and here to browse the participating schools. Even if you're not a senior right now, this is a great time to look into the participating schools-- maybe you have more options than you think!
Scholarship tip: Banks and credit unions sometimes offer scholarships!
Some banks and credit unions offer scholarships to their members or clients! Search the name of your bank or credit union + "scholarship" to see what is available. Here are two examples from Cyprus Credit Union and Mountain America Credit Union, plus this scholarship from Wells Fargo specifically for students with disabilities.
