You can vote to help send these GSMST students' project into outer space.
Three students at the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology hope their project is out of this world... Literally. Seniors Shawn Albert of Snellville and Aditya Ragunathan of Duluth, along with junior Brian Barr of Dacula entered Lenovo and YouTube's Science Lab Competition. On Wednesday, they received word that they were chosen as one of 60 finalists worldwide. The competition is for students all across the globe. Students between the ages of 14 and 18 had to design a science project to be performed in space on the International Space Station and streamed live on YouTube. The trio chose to focus on diabetes and insulin. “Our goal with this experiment is to see how microgravity and other factors in space affect insulin …

Is your child fully prepared for getting back into the classroom? With a couple of weeks left before school starts, how can we be sure? Here is a list of 10 ideas from a teacher’s point-of-view that can help get the kids back in gear for the new school ye
1. Check with your child’s school to find out if he/she was assigned a summer reading project. 2. Jot down open house dates; it will help eliminate some of those first day of school jitters. Open houses provide students, parents, and teachers a chance to meet, discuss classroom expectations and create acquaintance. Open houses are usually the week before school. 3. While you’re out shopping for those pencils, pens and paper be sure to get plenty to last the school year—(students often run out but forget to inform their parents during the year) 4. Get those eyes checked. Many students reveal that they are having vision problems during the school year, after receiving failing grades. 5. Hand-sanitizer is a much-needed commodity. If you can…

The money will pay for a machine that can produce three-dimensional models of anything.
The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology received a donation to help put its students on par with those at elite engineering institutes like Georgia Tech and MIT. The Nordson Corporation Foundation is giving the Lawrenceville charter school $21,000 to purchase a Computer Numeric Control, or CNC, mill. A CNC mill is a computer-controlled device that can produce three-dimensional models of anything — including itself. "It will allow students to process from an idea to a finished product," said Chuck Lockert, engineering program manager at GSMST. "Yesterday a man with arthritis came in and wanted a walker with larger wheels so he could go outside on his porch," Lockert said. The man wanted the school to build one for him. …
