PHYSICS FIELD TRIP

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.

Staff Travel to See Newly Renovated Schools

Middle school, high school, and district staff members joined Dan Davis of CG Schmidt and architect Nick Kent of Plunkett Raysich to tour newly renovated schools in Franklin, Brookfield, Brown Deer, and Beloit. The intent of the tours was to learn about the design of current instructional spaces. Staff from
RASD, as well as Dan and Nick, are reading Blueprint for Tomorrow: Redesigning Schools for Student-Centered Learning by Prakash Nair. The book distinguishes student-centered schools from traditional teacher-centered schools. Four design principles for schools are listed as: be welcoming (safe, nurturing, encouraging good citizenship); be versatile (agile and personalized); support varying and specific learning activities (multiple learning settings); and send positive messages (about identity and behavior).
