Mrs. Daly's AP Biology students worked very hard the past few weeks. They took a concept, transpiration, and chose how they would test the rate of transpiration in plants. The students wrote their own experiments, procedures, and testing. They performed the experiments over a week long period and gather valuable data. They then had to evaluate their data and analyze whether or not their hypotheses had been met. The students then created college level posters to disseminate their information to others. The class worked very hard and deserve recognition for their outstanding commitment to their education.

Daveron Duncan and Raquwon Cooks took part in the CAT building LL open house family day. Building LL has been a huge contributor to the Manual industrial tech program the past few years. They asked that Manual be a part of their big day. Both students had an opportunity to meet and talk to many successful CAT employees. Daveron and Raquwon were able to talk about the program at Manual and show off some of their skills and projects. They were able to test out some of the latest welding equipment as well as program a Kawasaki robot and test their welding skills on a Miller virtual weld trainer.
