Losoya Middle School Library hosted a Skype-A-Scientist Event today, 3-27-19. Losoya MS was matched with a Biologist, Alejandra Centurrion-Carrera, originally from Mexico, but now studying for her PhD at the University of Bremen in Germany. Her current focus in on wasps and using them to kill harmful bugs that damage corn and bean crops. She is getting her doctorate free and getting paid for her studies by finding a scholarship on Twitter of all places. She was happy to answer our many question from: What was it like to be so far from home? Do the wasps every sting her? You can see more about Alejandra via Twitter @Losoya_MS. This is part of our college-readiness series of Skypes to help students begin to think about college and careers (a Certified Librarian National Standard). #futurereadylibs
Ms. Trevino in collaboration with Harlan students work to make Raspberry Pis, not pies, put down that fork. Raspberry Pis are small computers (tiny motherboards), that allow students to build a computer. They are quite affordable and just need a few code commands to get going. Losoya is proud of Ms.Trevino for her collaboration with Harlan leading to higher STEM achievement for Losoya students.
Mr. Bogran’s World Studies Classes are creating Ancient Egyptian Death Masks as they study the African Continent. Death Masks were made to give a face to people entering the after-life. Wax or plaster was often used to make a cast from the corpse’s face so that the mask resembled the actual face of the dead. Both men and women were given masks. King Tut’s tomb was one of the most famous because it was one of the few tombs found virtually undisturbed.
Mrs. Trevino’s Science Classes have been busy building models that display the Layers of the Earth’s Crust. Challenged to use any medium they wanted, students have shown their creativity. Marshmellows, paper plates, clay, paper mache, styrofoam are just some of the materials students have used to demonstrate their knowledge. These models are on display in the Losoya Library and are attracting lots of attention. Take a look at some of the models pictures here.
Mrs. San Miguel started out as an English, Language Arts, Reading Teacher just a few years ago. This year, however, she is teaching what she loves most, World History. But her love of reading is still contagious and she has her students super excited about reading books by famous author, Caroline Tung Richmond. Ms. San Miguel has been in contact with Ms. Richmond who will later be visiting students via SKYPE. Ms. San Miguel also made an appeal to family and friends asking for help in purchasing books for her classes to read and they responded! A Champion of Literacy, Ms. San Miguel has ignited a fire in her kids to read books: The Only Thing to Fear, and Live in Infamy. #LiteracyRocks #LosoyaStrong #LosoyaReads
