During our Chapter on Stars and Galaxies I gave the students an assignment to research a galaxy or nebula, find certain information and using cross curricular teaching with the help of Jamie Jo our JH art teacher. The students used chalk and pastels to draw a picture of their galaxy/nebula. Although all the kids did a great job I always like to have a competition (short mans syndrome) and offer a small prize for the best in each class. Here are the winners!

This past week 14 Ambridge Junior High students competed against 2300 students from across Pennsylvania at the Technology Student Association(TSA) state conference. The Ambridge Junior High chapter did extremely well. Over all the Chapter walked away with awards from 11 Different competitions. We even had one of our very own students, Tyler Stickles, run for the State Treasurer position.
