Symposium 2016

We convened the entire MST Magnet program here at CHS on Wednesday night, grades 9-12, staff, parents, family, friends, and even a couple of graduates, to celebrate and showcase the year’s project study.  It was an impressive showing that began with a fair in the Commons, followed by formal presentations in the North Commons (after we gave up trying to get the technology in the theater to work).

We heard from the following student presenters:

  • A team anchored by juniors Calvin Taylor and Phoebus Tsai and supported by sophomores Gabe Mukobi and Duy Vuong shared the work they did on their Riffling Thermal Pollution project. By the way, they recently earned a second place in the Build Environment challenge category at the WSU Imagine Tomorrow Competition for this work.
  • Seniors Carly Langer and Casey Tolcser shared their internship experience conducted at Reed College centered on research about enhancing the growth and maturation of zebrafish larvae.
  • And senior Anna Roche spoke on her internship at WSUV, as well as her recent trip to ISEF earlier this month.

Excellent work with your projects this year, Magnetos. And a hearty congratulations to the seniors as they close this chapter in their lives and begin a new one.  Best of luck in your studies as you join other Magnetos and Papermakers studying across the world to realize their dreams.
