Brush Students Put Physics into Action with Mouse Trap Powered Cars

Brush students in AP and traditional physics classes recently had the opportunity to apply classroom concepts by constructing and testing mouse trap powered cars. Students began constructing the cars outside of school shortly before Christmas break using simple household materials.   Under the guidance of science teachers Mr. Gary Mikes and Mr. Dan Trentanelli, students learned about principles of physics including friction and energy conversion which are utilized to help propel the cars forward. Students had the opportunity to witness these principles in action by racing their mouse trap powered cars in the hallway outside the classroom.

Gifted Identification Testing Scheduled for the week of January 26th

Each year, school districts in Ohio have the responsibility of identifying gifted learners in several categories. The district must provide an accurate child count to the Ohio Department of Education. In accordance with this state mandate, and as part of the South Euclid Lyndhurst assessment programming, all students in grade 2 and grade 4 will be taking standardized tests during the week of January 26th. The district will use the results from these tests not only to help identify students as gifted for the Ohio child count list, but they will also assist classroom teachers as they continue to work with students this year. The tests that districts use must be approved by ODE. The tests that will be used in SEL this year are the Otis Lennon School Ability Test (8th edition) and the Stanford Achievement Test (10th edition).  Thank you for supporting your student during this week of testing.
