  • Summer Zoology Fun With Mr. Yaussy

    Summer Zoology Fun With Mr. Yaussy

    This past summer, high school students were given the opportunity to take am elective Zoology course. This course focused on the diversity of animal life on the planet, and incorporated a variety of hands-on and behind-the-scenes experiences. Students got to talk with scientists from the Fairport ODNR Station and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to learn about professions in the field. At the Akron Zoo and Columbus Zoo, they were able to peek behind the enclosures to where the grizzly bears sleep in Akron, and Mr. Yaussy was slightly attacked by a pelican in Columbus. There was even a visit from the Lake Metroparks with an opossum, a red-tailed hawk, a chicken, and a sheep.

  • Design Lab VR Studio Field Trip

    Design Lab VR Studio Field Trip

    On Monday, September 17, the 12 students and two teachers who are a part of the VR, AR, AI Seminar in the Hooked on Education Design Lab ventured to Akron to visit New Territory VR Studio. The students immersed themselves in VR technologies. Some students took virtual trips on Google Earth, some defended a castle with their virtual archery skills, others cooked breakfast with a virtual chef and our very own Mr. Conn wielded a virtual lightsaber in a spirited exhibition of skills. Some of the students were also able to wear a rumble vest, which made them feel music and sounds as opposed to just hearing them. After using the various technologies, we were able to sit down with New Territory owner, Bill Myers, to ask him questions about the future of AI, VR, and AR including what we can expect in the future. He also gave us insight as to what our students can do to prepare themselves to get into a career in these very lucrative fields.

  • Hooked On Salsa!

    Hooked On Salsa!

    Hooked on Salsa is a project-based learning opportunity offered to 9-12th graders through Harding High School’s Hooked on Education personalized learning program. This project allows students to earn credits for Financial Literacy and English Language Arts as they make, market and sell their own salsa. Partnerships with community organizations have allowed students to get involved in hands-on experiential learning.

    Special thanks to Bernadette Armbruster of the Fairport Heritage Community Garden, David Richards of Auburn Career Center's Horticulture program, Amy Ryan and the Auburn Culinary Arts students, Fr Peter Mihalic and Dr. Shanon Sterringer of Saint Anthony's church, Chef Tino Enriquez, The Martha Holden Jennings Foundation and the teachers, administrators and support staff of Fairport Harbor Schools for making this project possible.
