Arul’s project “What is the effect of gut microbiome in improving neurological conditions” was selected to participate in the State Science and Engineering Fair.
Arul was also nominated for the Broadcom Masters Program. This program is the preeminent national middle school science and engineering competition in the United States and the world. Now in its fifth year, the Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) inspires middle school students from all walks of life to pursue math and science throughout high school, opening doors to exciting university and career choices in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
This past Friday night the Drama Club was practicing for their upcoming performance, The Giver while FSAPS Moms and Female Teachers immersed themselves in Asian Culture by attending East Asian Mother’s Night in the Cafeteria. Students were playing soccer games with friends in the gym and almost all of the Academic Teams were out in full force- Destination Imagination, Science Olympiad, and the Robotics Team. Check out below for a few photos from all the fun this past Friday Night (February 5th)- and plan to stop by one Friday evening to join in the fun!
Two of our teams are working on the structural challenge, Musical Mashup. This involves designing and building a structure that supports weight and is a musical instrument. They must play a musical solo and tell a story with at least one musical character. All ideas and work must be done by team members only.
Four of our teams are working on the technical challenge, Pace of Change. These teams must design and build a vehicle able to carry at least one team member across the presentation area, multiple times. They must also change the vehicle propulsion system and the vehicle movement method during the presentation, as well as present a story about change. All ideas and work must be done by team members only.
Thank you to all of the parents, of our team members, who have stepped forward to help the teams prepare. Without our wonderful parents, the teams would never be able to accomplish their challenges!
