APS Board of Education Authorizes Bond Question

If approved by voters in November, the bond would fund building and technology improvement at every school in the district.  The cost to taxpayers would be $1.93 per month for every $100,000 of home value.  The plans include a $20,132,000 investment in Vista PEAK Preparatory's infrastructure which would give the STEM Pathway a new state-of-the-art home including a prototyping room, workshop, computer lab, and PBL classroom.

Seniors Begin Brainstorming

Last week, our 4th year students began brainstorming everyday problems they might design solutions to.  From traffic accidents to waking up on time in the morning, our ideas were very diverse.  This week, each group will choose one problem to pursue and attempt to solve by Thanksgiving.  Where will the design process take us this year?

Wednesday Rafts a Success

After just a few minutes to brainstorm, our first year STEM students blew away the Foil Raft competition.  Today, large surface area and simple edges to keep out the water proved to be most effective at carrying heavy loads of marbles. 

How many marbles can they hold?  Hard to say as we couldn't find enough marbles to pile on top of some of these rafts.
