SkillsUSA Kansas City Competition

We just returned from the SkillsUSA competitions in Kansas City.  CHHS had only one student attend, Teran Selin – Class of 2013.  He competed in Cabinet Making and did an amazing job.
 
Below is a rundown of the activities all the students were able do while in attendance.  Make sure to contact your counselor if you are interested in becoming a part of the SkillsUSA team.
 
Tuesday started with a continental breakfast at the hotel and a SkillsUSA knowledge test. After that students were allowed to visit the competition site, Bartel Hall, in Kansas City, MO. Buses transported the students to and from Bartel Hall every half-hour. Students scoped out their individual competition stations and visited the many industry booths. 
 
The sponsoring companies had games and tons of free stuff; everything from custom-made flip books, to free T-shirts, pens, pencils, candy and more. The states and territories represented had their own trading pins. So, while mixing at Bartel Hall, students tried to collect “state” pins from every state and territory. Alaska and Puerto Rico seemed to be the most coveted pins this year. Pin trading is a great way for the students to meet.
 
Tuesday evening was the opening ceremony with keynote speaker Mike Rowe, the dirty jobs guy.
 
On Wednesday, the Cabinet Making students reported to Bartel Hall with their basic toolboxes, they brought with them, and spent most of the day finding their work station, getting acquainted with the power tools they would be using and taking a woodworking safety/knowledge test.
 
Early Thursday morning, students arrived at their contest site, were given their assignment and began work at 8 AM. They had a half-hour lunch and continued working until 4 PM. At 4 PM the buzzer sounded and all work stopped. Students were instructed to clean up. Every area of competition had their different work stations cleaned up by 5 PM. It was amazing to witness the speed and quality of the clean up.
 
Thursday night the students went to Worlds of Fun amusement park. This activity was optional. 
 
Friday evening was the awards/closing ceremony. When they returned to the hotel, there was a sandwich bar awaiting their arrival.

Sports Students go to Class at Maverick Center

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Steven Kun, marketing director at the Maverick Center, hosted more than 20 students from Mr. Rowe’s Sports and Entertainment Marketing class on May 16.

Kun began their visit by pointing out promotional devices outside the building, including signs, banners and roadside electronics. Kun continued the tour inside, pointing out signage of sponsoring firms and amenities for customers. He taught the students about their four “revenue streams” — parking, tickets, concessions and merchandise.

Once inside the arena where the students watched crews set up for a concert, Kun and Chris Carrico, VP of corporate sales, talked further about their backgrounds in the pros and Olympic sports. They taught the students about the impact of promoting key players, especially those from foreign countries, who encourage youth in their homelands to play their sports. They spoke of the burgeoning market for basketball in China. They predict India will be the next sports frontier.

Engineering Summer Camps at the University of Utah

There are two summer camps offered for high school students at the College of Engineering at the University of Utah.
The first camp, coming up June 17th to 21st,  is Hi-Gear.  It is an engineering camp for girls-only  It is a week-long camp that is hands-on and experiential. The camp is generally limited to 20 or so girls.  The food is great and the activities are awesome. Many of the girls that attend this camp do go on to be very involved engineering students, in fact many of our summer engineering ambassadors that help to run this camp attended this camp as high school students.
The following week a 3-day Exploring Engineering camp is offered and that is open to all. The theme this year is “Lights, Camera, Engineering”.  This is also a hands-on exploration of engineering and will provide an introductory experience to all of the engineering disciplines offered for study here at the University of Utah (Bio-engineering, Civil and Environmental engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Computer Science).
Please check out the website below and pass this information on to others.  Studies have shown that engaging students in activities such as these over the summer helps them to retain the knowledge they have gained over the school year. Both of these camps are STEM-oriented and give students an opportunity to see the connectedness of science, technology, engineering and math.
