District News

With the unseasonably warm weather and rain much of the ice on our area lakes has deteriorated. Students are warned to be extra cautious when ice fishing in the near future. In addition to ice fishing equipment the club owns for student use, we have 15 pair of Frabill ice picks which is an important self-rescue device to have with you when ice fishing. Take along a throwable boat cushion to aid in the rescue of someone that falls in. Fish with a friend and have a plan on how to get someone out of the water that might fall through the ice. Check with local bait shops for ice depth reports and remember that ice thickness can drastically change in a matter of hours. When in doubt, don't go ice fishing until there is better ice. To pick up a set of ice picks text your request to 920-896-3132.

Point Beach Nuclear Facilities

Mr.Goeldi's physics class toured Point Beach Nuclear Facilities near Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Students explored various types of techniques and technologies used to produce electricity in homes. The students turned generators by hand to produce electrical current to power small devices such as cameras and a model Ferris wheel. In addition to hands-on experiments, students spoke with professional engineers about how the reactors themselves worked and what was all involved in pursuing a job working in the nuclear field.
