SDSU Champion Mechatronics Club to visit CPH – Oct 15

CPH is fortunate to be hosting a presentation by SDSU’s championship Mechatronics Team this Thursday, October 15 in Room 1301 after school. This is a student-led robotics and technology club that beat 37 international teams to capture first place in the 2015 competition.

The presentation isn’t just for techies because the SDSU team isn’t just for budding engineers and computer science majors – they also encourage business students to get involved and take control of their learning.

Four team members will be presenting including Austin Owens, founder and president (also son of CPH’s new ASSETS coordinator Michelle Owens).  Three of the four team members graduated from our district’s schools.

They will illustrate what can happen when an entrepreneurial spirit is applied to project-based learning.  You don’t want to miss this one!


SIA Student Completes Neuroscience Internship

SIA 2015 NeuroLab intern

SIA 2015 Neurocscience Intern

Congratulations to Castle Park High 11th grader Jennifer H. for successfully completing the NeuroLab Program at Coastal Marine BioLab in Ventura, California.

During her 10-day internship, Jennifer identified neurons as part of a $12 billion research program called the BRAIN Initiative. Jennifer did not just shadow scientists, she worked alongside them as they used chick embryos as the model organism.

Jennifer was one of only ten students chosen out of hundreds of nationwide high school and college applicants. She conducted laboratory work that drew upon advanced scientific concepts and innovative technologies.

Jennifer will be recognized for her contribution to the project by being named a coauthor in a science journal article and will be featured in a publicized interview in late August! Congratulations Jennifer!
