Announcements 5-7-13

News from Renaissance

Renaissance students worked with IBM engineers to explore and investigate electrical circuits. 
  • I learned that if you have a solar panel  you will get more energy based on how much surface area is showing to the light.
  • I learned about electrons, electrical current, and voltage. I also learned about how the electrons move and what prevents them from moving. What prevents the electrons from moving are called insulators. The path the electrons follow when forced are called conductors. They allow easy movement of electrons through them. Another thing I learned was that if the voltage it high enough, the electricity will pass through it anyways.
  • They gave advice like even though you don't like math or science you should still do it because it opens up more opportunities in the future. 
  • Also they said that math and science are the two main school skills you should have to become an engineer.

Green Ribbon

On June 3rd, Ms. Cavallo and the Green Ribbon Team are traveling to Washington DC to accept SACS's Green Ribbon Award. The entire week will be "Green Week" here at SACS and we will be doing all kinds of things to celebrate. 

We are asking for your help. We are trying to collect a list all the things that you, the students, have done to make this award possible. We will use this list to create a special display in the lobby for "Green Week". Please email Ms. Cavallo with anything you, or your team has done to make our school a Green School at
