Dr. Kevin Pickett DMD, Pickett Orthodontics, is making a huge impact on the Dental Assisting Pathway at Theodore High School. Not only does he allow students to job shadow and intern at his office, this school year, he and his wife, Rebecca donated a full set of braces for one of the student anatomical dental training heads. The Picketts have also hired a former THS Dental Assisting student to work at their Mobile location. A huge thank you to Pickett Orthodontics for your contribution to our program and for being a Partner in Education.
The air rifle range at Theodore High School is complete! Mr. Brett Bosarge and his team of construction workers did another fantastic job building the second air rifle range of this type for JROTC programs in our district. The collaborative effort between JROTC, CTE, and Facilities is another example of the great teamwork seen on a daily basis in the Mobile County Public School System. Special thanks to Assistant Superintendent, Mr. Larry Mouton, Mr. Tommy Sheffield, and Mr. Louis Anderson for their support of this project! The next range will be built at Blount High School, followed by Williamson High School later in the year. The Bobcat Battalion appreciates everyone involved in the project and look forward to using the air rifle range soon.
Mrs. Shiver's PLTW Biomedical Sciences Medical Interventions students performed a simulation to quantify bacterial meningitis antigens in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) of fictitious patients. They learned to use the micropipet, create serial dilutions, and make comparisons to a reference sample. They discovered that patient "Sue" had the highest antigen concentration and therefore was most likely the individual who spead the pathogen to her roommate, friend, and lab partner. It was a good lesson for the seniors who will be attending college in less thana year. After these simulations, students claime that they are swearing off drinking out of the same containers as each other!
Davidson is excited to launch new AP Computer Science Principles Course this Fall with Skittle Robots. #CS4AL #APCSP Students used Skittles as a tool when mapping out their assignment. Did they get to eat their Skittles after class?
