Chemistry 1 students are heating a hydrated magnesium sulfate compound to drive the water molecules attached to the magnesium sulfate crystals out of the compound, forming anhydrous magnesium sulfate. The mass difference between the hydrated compound and the anhydrous compound is equal to the mass of water driven off. The students will determine the mole ratio of the water to the anhydrous magnesium sulfate and write the formula of the hydrate.

Students in Mr. Weirich’s robotics class have recently been developing a robot capable of lifting ten pounds of weight using only a pulley system. The students used their knowledge about pulleys to devise a system to reduce the amount of work needed to lift the weight twelve inches off the ground. After developing a robot and pulley system, the students attempted to lift the weight but to little avail. After coming up with multiple modifications including adding an extra pulley and adding additional weight to the robot, the students were finally able to achieve their goal of lifting ten pounds twelve inches off the ground. Students involved in the project include Nic Arnett, Luke Gorbett, Daniel Hufford, and Austin McCauley.
Mr. Weirich’s 2nd period architecture class finalized their 3 week long plot plan project with a middle school voting poll.  Eight plot plans were created and placed upon the middle school stage and voted upon during their lunch period.  The top 3 plot plan finalists were;  1st Place Luke Gorbett, 2nd Place Mitchell Zahn, and 3rd Place group of Sam Zimmerman, Brandon Sigars, Brayden Winemiller, and Parker Keunzli.
