STEM STUDENT Announcement for 12/13/12

For Thursday, December 13, 2012
"N" Schedule Day
Advisory Day

·      Apologies to those attending to participate in the NASA webinar yesterday.  That’s the thing about technology - sometimes a solar storm just makes the International Space Station a hard signal to pick up! J  We’ll try again as soon as a new date is announced.

·      Everyone plan to eat from the cafeteria today (Thursday) because it is Christmas Dinner!  Menu includes turkey, pork roast, dressing, and pumpkin pie!  Thanks to our wonderful kitchen staff who work so hard to feed us all so well!

·      Brown Bag Chat this week: Friday, Doug Smith & Richard Stair about Wireless Charger Technologies, Texas Instruments.  Email Mr. Smith to let him know you plan on attending.

Service Opportunities:
·      Ijams Nature Center has lots of opportunities for service.  For example, they would like volunteers for their annual holiday craft party on 12/15 from 10-2.

Quote of the day: from Sydney J. Harris

The two words “information” and “communication” are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things.  Information is giving out; communication is getting through.

Practice L&N Habits every day: Collaboration, Critical thinking, Design, Innovation, Inquiry, & Professionalism
