Honors geometry students across the school united this week to construct bridges using strictly uncooked spaghetti noodles and elmers glue. This project created challenges for many students forcing them to use their problem solving skills while incorporating what they have learned within the geometry classroom. NC sophomore Tyler Rogers overcame the challenge and constructed a bridge that held 72.8 pounds before collapsing. “I enjoyed this project. It was definitely a challenge, but in the end it was worth it when my bridge held the most weight and beat the school record,” Rogers said.

To remedy this, the school district will be showing a short film titled Angst this Wednesday night from 6 to 8 p.m; afterwards, a panel will take place to further educate attendees on mental health.
