“Our Body, A Universe Within”

Peering at the wonders inside of the human body was the experience shared by students from Mrs. Young’s  Physiology and Health Occupations classes. Other interested juniors and seniors joined the excursion to downtown Omaha on Friday morning, August 24th.    Preserved and injected with polymers, the human specimens on display provided minute details about contents of the skeletal, muscular, nervous, digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.  An opportunity to touch a human heart, kidney, liver, and brain was provided.  Truly, we all understand a bit better why our own bodies are actually “A Universe Within.”

Kid’s Club Robotics Week

Kid’s Club enjoyed Robotics week with Mr. PJ Mallette.  He showed them how the Mars’ rover was made and utilized by showing them interesting shows.  Then the kids made their own rover/robot.  They had the task of having it maneuver through an obstacle course which required computer programming!  They took a field trip to the Iowa Westerns robotics department.  They also had class there and made robots.  Iowa Western gave them each a goodie bag with a water bottle and t-shirt.  The kids loved it and the camp had a great turnout with about 20 participants total.
