MEH Brick Beasts win this weekend at FIRST LEGO League Competition

on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 09:28.

Reimagining the way typing could be taught to elementary students, eight MEH students won the Judges Award at Saturday's FIRST LEGO League tournament. The Brick Beasts competed at the U.S. Patent Office in core areas of robot performance, research project, robot design, and Core Values (sportsmanship and professionalism).
Team members Alec Autor, Tessa Boneau, Chris Goodwin, Dmitri Modell, Jonathan Oppenheimer, Sneha Parthasarathy, Daniel Trauberman, and James Trombo were coached by Ari Autor, Jon Modell and Amy Trombo and received support from MEH as well as the Hilton Garden Inn. This is the team's third year in FLL and their second as recipients of the Judges Award.
The Brick Beasts shared their research with Falls Church City School Superintendent Toni Jones and staff last week and have been invited to present their findings about typing instruction to the School Board.

Students enjoy Argentine cookies

on Wednesday, 05 November 2014 14:21.

Valeria Pineiro, parent of 7th MEH student Lucas Green, came to Liz Stigall's Spanish II classes today. Ms. Pineiro took students on a virtual tour through the beautiful and diverse provinces of Argentina and also brought samples of the Argentine cookies, los alfajores, for the students. But they had to use their other four senses to identify each ingredient in the recipe before getting a sample.
