We got to catch up with Allan Krahl Media Director.  We learned about what he and his team do.


On Thursday March 11th the PSA students got to hear from a recruitier for the Coast Guard


Chelsea Herndon is a teacher in the Biomedical Sciences Academy at STEM. 

She teaches a PLTW course called Human Body Systems (HBS) which is an advanced Anatomy and Physiology course.  In their first unit, her students learned about directional and regional terms of the human body.  

She offered an extra credit opportunity for students to create a video “taping” 30 regional terms to their own bodies or a friend/family member’s body.  

In this video submission, they had to pronounce the regional terms correctly and “tape” all 30 terms on the body correctly in under 5 minutes.  In this video student  Zoe Hammond (daughter of Marjorie Hammond) shows off her impressing “taping” skills on her model Journee.
