Spanish Exchange students visit EHS

Spanish Exchange students visit EHS
EHS Spanish teacher, Brittney Norman spent the 2014-2015 school year teaching English at IES Angel Corella, a high school in Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, Spain. She left there with a vision to create a partnership by means of a Spanish exchange program, allowing American and Spanish students a grander cultural experience. On Sunday, March 26, that became a reality as a group of 16 students and 2 teachers from IES Angel Corella arrived in the US, welcomed by several Edgewood host families. During their 10-day stay the students had the opportunity to attend classes at the high school with their host students on two separate days. They also took field trips to a variety of locations including downtown Bloomington and Indiana University,  Nashville, IN,  Blue Cavern Springs, Indianapolis and Louisville.  From bowling to high school athletic events, evening activities were scheduled as well, giving the Spanish exchange students a full spectrum of the American student culture.

Powerful Messages About Engineering

From DiscoverE Learning, there are five powerful messages to share with your kids - especially your girls - about engineering.  Studies from Engineer Your Life and Changing the Conversation have found that girls:

1. Don't know what engineering is;

2. Think engineers must be exceptional at both math and science; and,

3. Believe engineering is difficult and challenging.

These same projects also found that when we change how we talk about engineering, we can change what they think about engineering.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, counselor, or volunteer here are FIVE things to share about engineers and their work.

Curiosity—Engineers ask lots of questions that start with: Why? How? What if? 

Creativity—Engineering is a great outlet for the imagination—the perfect field for independent thinkers.

Teamwork—Engineering takes teamwork, and engineers work with all kinds of people inside and outside the field. Whether they’re designers or architects, doctors or entrepreneurs, engineers are surrounded by smart, inspiring people.

Opportunities
—An engineering degree offers lots of freedom in finding a person’s dream job. It can be a launching pad for jobs in business, design, medicine, law, and government. To employers or graduate schools, an engineering degree reflects a well-educated individual who has been taught ways of analyzing and solving problems that can lead to success in all kinds of fields.

Helping Others—Imagine what life would be like without pollution controls to preserve the environment, life-saving medical equipment, or low-cost building materials for fighting global poverty. All this takes engineering. In very real and concrete ways, engineers save lives, prevent disease, reduce poverty, and protect our planet.Want to learn about effective engineering messages?
