WHAM 4th grade students visited the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) which is supported by the National Science Foundation and operated by Caltech and MIT. The Science Education Center at LIGO seeks to use cutting edge science and engineering to inspire the scientist in every visitor. Be sure to stop by the LIGO exhibit during STEM Night at WHAM on Thursday, February 28th.

Several WHAM students' art is currently featured as a part of the 2019 Debose Fine Arts Festival. Their art will be displayed at the EBR Main Library through March 2019. Matthew S. won 1st place for his crawfish drawing in the Beginner 2D category, and Krish S. won 3rd place in the 3D Intermediate category. We are excited about the experiences provided to our students through the visual arts department!
WHAM recently hosted the Block Kids Building Competition sponsored by the local chapter of the National Association of Women in the Construction Industry (NAWIC). Twenty-five 4th and 5th grade students participated in this national program that introduces children to the construction industry. In an effort to create awareness and promote careers in the industry, each of the students utilized 75 Lego blocks and up to three additional items to construct a project related to the construction industry. All of the students did a phenomenal job! Congratulations to Anthony A. (1st place), Suheyla S. (2nd place), and Henry B. (3rd place).
