Design Challenge SUCCESS!

Two students designed a utensil for a local man battling Huntington’s disease. The students met the man and got a sense of how eating can be a challenge with his disability. With the help of Mr. Kisker, Liberty North Project Lead the Way teacher, and using Liberty’s 3-D printer, the students were able to 3-D print a prototype utensil for this gentleman to try out. Once he is able to test out their design, variations and changes will be made accordingly.--Mrs. Zubeck

Design Challenge Showcase!

Navigating the dating scene:
Positive dating experience now may set the stage for healthy adult relationships later. Use these guidelines to talk regularly with your teenager about dating.
*Rules: Set and discuss rules with your teen. For example, maybe he's only allowed to go on group dates for now. You might also require that he tells you where he is going and agree on a curfew for when he needs to be home.
*Respect: Your child needs to show respect for his date--and expect respect in return. That includes being considerate when he sees his date at school and not spreading rumors, even if they decide they're not right for each other.
*Risks: The pressure to experiment with sexual activity is real for both boys and girls, whether from peers or from dates. And teenagers may make decisions without considering the risks. Talk to your child about your values and expectations, as well as the consequences of having sex.
