As a final product, they developed a library website which features book reviews on some of their favorite selections as well as books selected as YALSA's 2017 Teens' Top Ten. Visit the library website to learn more about the internship program. Scan the QR Code below to access the Student Library Internship website.

Life Skills students, along with Mr. Shara, Mrs. Wilson and the class’s para-professionals, joined with Mrs. Mills' engineering students to collaborate on the egg drop challenge. Each engineering student was paired with students from the Life Skills program. They collaborated to create awesome and unique designs to try to protect their eggs. The contraptions were tested by dropping them from the second floor down to the rotunda below. Although we did suffer some broken eggs, several of the contraptions were successful. Our winning contraption was built by Alex Inacio and Jake Kumlin. All in all, a great time was had and much learning occurred.
