Students from MEHMS competed in the school's first Science Olympiad competition this past Saturday with impressive results! 2 students won first place prizes while several medals were won by others!
The 2014 Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Career Fair packed the gym on Thursday! Over 85 volunteers from varying professions such as surgeons, real-estate agents, judges, reporters, and teachers, etc. showcased their careers to our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes, sharing stories and projects with the students.
Students were excited and were able to learn a lot from the volunteers, including how to properly administer surgical sutures (pictured). Students also participated in "Dress Up Day", sponsored by SCA.
Volunteers spanned the distinct groups of 16 career clusters as defined by the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Constorium (NASDCTEc).
"There's an app for that" wasn't true for MEH before 8th-graders Carlos Mercado and William Langan (l to r) created one. Their entry at the Intel NoVa Regional Science and Engineering Fair brought home the Best of Fair Grand Prize and will be moving on to the national competition. The top award grants a monetary prize of $25,000.
The following Huskies also picked up ribbons for their projects:
