Lab Saturday's at Ogden High

Ogden High teachers strive to provide support for all students and they don't mind putting in the extra time needed for students who are eager to do well and work hard toward their academic success!

On Saturday, around 30 students, some taking AP courses, some in the IB program, came to school to work on their osmosis experiments for their Cell Biology class. The students worked in groups to investigate osmosis. By taking what they learned in cell biology and applying it to a hands-on experiment, they will apply their results to design a new experiment to expand on cell transport and function.

Ogden High IB and AP students working on their Cell Biology labs on Saturday.

Ryan Edel, OHS Science teacher, said it is difficult to find time to work on experiments during the regular week, and coming in on Saturday lab days, provides both AP and IB students with the lab hours required by their program, and it is also a chance for them to get together, collaborate and do science.

Kiyo Obayashi, IB program, said the lab days have really helped give her extra time to focus on what she is learning in class, and it's a way to gain skills in team building. "Since I am working with people right now, who have similar interests and a willingness to learn, I am going to be better equipped to work in an environment with my colleagues," she said.

Malcome Hanks, AP program, said he absolutely loves I loves the AP program because it allows him the chance to interact with other students who enjoy learning, and it also allows him opportunities to apply his knowledge.

"We can directly relate the information we are gathering and studying for our tests and apply that to the job market as well," Hanks said. "I love my AP classes because the teachers are really engaged and willing to help and want to see us succeed. After graduating from high school, I will already have college credits that will go toward a degree in higher education, it's great!"

FIRST LEGO League - Hydro Dynamics

The FIRST LEGO League Qualifier Tournament, Hydro Dynamics, held at New Bridge School over the weekend, was exciting and emotional as participants and attendees stayed captivated by each teams robot and the obstacles they faced throughout the day.

Congratulations to the New Bridge Aqua Knights for taking home the overall Champions Award - This award combines points from all categories, and the Aqua Knights' mechanical design had a fresh splash of ingenuity and their programming was not lost in the night.

° DaVinci Dragons - Robot Performance Award - The team that scored the highest in robot competition.

° Robot Design award - New Bridge Heroic Knights. This teams heroic use of attachments made their robot design efficient and innovative, and they had clear understanding of tasks to complete.

° Project award - New Bridge Knights in Coding Armor - It was day and night on who won this award and this team really sleighed a dragon.

° Core Values award - Team Disco - This inspiration award celebrates a team that is empowered in their FIRST LEGO League experience and displays extraordinary enthusiasm and spirt. Team Disco impressed the judges with their well choreographed enthusiasm and support of each other.

The New Bridge Aqua Knights and New Bridge Heroic Knights are advancing to the state round.

FIRST LEGO League has four levels of competition: FIRST LEGO League Junior, FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotic Challenge. FIRST LEGO League provides participants with a path to meet objectives, which focus on building up students' interest in science and technology in a format that is engaging while also learning the core values of sportsmanship and collaboration.

The 2017 FIRST LEGO League challenge is hydrodynamics and is themed around water. Therefore, everything about the obstacle course, as well as the challenges, are focused on the water systems and needs through out our society. Not only will teams be judged on their performance, volunteers, referees and judges will be looking for how each team displays the core values of team work and sportsmanship. They will look at how each team problem solves, finds solutions, has fun, shares experiences with others and their gracious professionalism, which is where individuals and teams will do everything in their power to be super competitive, while at the same time, watching the other teams and helping in whatever ways they can.

A giant thank you to New Bridge School for organizing and hosting the event, as well as Weber State University and all the volunteers, judges and referees.

A special thanks goes to the events Star Sponsor, Shawnee Robinson, district STEM specialist. She provided outstanding support, and without her support, the event would not have happened.
