Robotics Club Visit Jay Plastics

On Tuesday, April 26th, Jay Plastics graciously opened their doors to our Middle School Robotics Club for a "behind the scenes" look at robots in action.

During the visit members viewed

1) Flame Robot - used a flame to clean off parts;
2) Destat Robot - used pieces of dry ice to clean off parts;
3) Paint Robot - used to paint the clean parts;
4) Material Handling Robot - a large robot used to move racks full of parts.

They also had the opportunity to do some programming on a new robot that will eventually be used for material handling.

Special thanks to hosts and tour guides at Jay's - Paul Boggs, Ken Palesh, and Brian Zackman. Club members were thankful for companies like Jay's that allow students to see how information they are learning today translates into job skills for the future.

Seventh Grade Science Students Investigate Research Facility

Students in Mr. Stimpert's 7th grade honors science class visited WIL Research Facility in Ashland. During the trip students learned about research involving different species including rats, mice, rabbits, dogs, and monkeys. Students learned that this research directly influences the types of medicines that humans use today. Extensive procedures go into each and every study so that precise, thorough calculations can be reached. Animals go through trials of testing of proposed medication and then after results are recorded and deemed successful are sent off to the next step and hopefully approved for human use.

2016 Ontario Basketball Playing League

The Ontario Basketball staff will be conducting the 22st annual Ontario Playing League for those players who are currently in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades from any area schools. There will be two divisions: College Division (5th and 6th grades) and NBA Division (7th and 8th grades). All games will be played at the Ontario High School Gym.

The concept of the league is very simple. Players are divided as evenly as possible into teams with a maximum of nine players per team. A league schedule is played on the first three days and then a double elimination tournament is played on the final day. We try to limit the number of participants from the same school to two per team. Each team is guaranteed two games per day. Players are guaranteed equal playing time as a designated substitution rotation is followed. The Ontario Basketball staff along with our varsity players will officiate all of the games and enforce the substitution format.

Attached is the information sheet and registration forms. If you have any questions please contact Joe Balogh at 419-512-0164 (cell phone) or e-mail him at balogh.joe@ontarioschools.org.
