Congratulations to Manual Academy sophomore Jahdzea (Jazzy) Rice for being accepted into the 2015 Bradley Freshman/Sophomore Honor Band. She represented Manual by participating in an event that included students from all across the state of Illinois. The performance took place on Tuesday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Bradley’s Dingledine Music Center. The Bradley Symphonic Winds opened the performance.
The Manual Academy RoboRams FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics Qualifying Competition will be held Saturday, December 5 at Manual Academy. As part of the event, Caterpillar senior vice president Dave Bozeman will speak to students about STEM career opportunities. Approximately 250 students representing 20 – 24 teams of 7th through 12th grade students will participate. The event will be free and open to the public. Volunteers are needed for the event.
Fourteen Manual Academy students are involved in the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Jr. Club (SHPEJr). Manual students are working with Bradley Engineering students to design and build STEM projects, plan field trips, bridge buying, cardboard boat-building and competition. Students are meeting every Thursday with Mrs. Daly and the Bradley Engineering SHPE group.
Do your remember “hitting the stacks”? Thanks to technology, students today rarely have to spend endless hours searching for books in the stacks. As students progress academically through high school, college and beyond, however, knowing how to find resource material in the stacks may become necessary. To make sure Manual Academy students have that skill, Manual Academy librarian Mrs. Peggy King prepared a fun-filled library search activity that had the students searching the stacks like super-sleuths. The English I students participated in an old-fashioned scavenger hunt to introduce them to research 101. They ended their adventure by checking-out personal interest material. Way to Go, Rams
