The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
Brian Straight, one of Skyline's GK-12 fellows, taught students about what is currently going on in the world of robotics. Not only did he touch on biomedical engineering, humanoid robots, drones, and robots in space, he also taught the sophomores about his own personal research. Students learned how he analyzed forces exerted on a person in a wheelchair as they were being pushed in an effort to create a more supportive chair in the future during his time as a mechanical engineering graduate student. Students also got to learn about another project that Brian has worked on, a curb-climbing wheelchair, and see a time lapse video of Brian and his colleague testing it out.
Having Brian and Valerie Tetro (our other GK-12 fellow) in the classroom on a regular basis has enabled our STEM students to learn more about college and graduate school. They are resources for our students in both engineering and post-high school education opportunities. We have been so privileged at Skyline to have a partnership with CU-Boulder that has provided us with these fellows since the inception of the STEM Academy. This partnership also extends to the guaranteed admissions opportunity for our Academy students.
