    Speech & Debate Went to Nationals This Summer


    The West High and Assumption High Speech and Debate team represented Iowa well at the 2016 National Speech and Debate Tournament in Salt Lake City. Over 4000 people attended the tournament, and students competed against about 250 other students in each event. They had a lot of fun bonding at Olympic Park with fun activities like zip-lining,  a rope obstacle course, and free-falling, as well as visiting the filming site High School Musical. If you’d like to join us this year for awesome competition and our fun adventures, join us for our first meeting, on Tuesday, August 30 after school in Room 238.

    Kenyan Experience

    Seven members of the Combustible Lemons traveled to Nairobi and Nakuru, Kenya to teach robotics and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for two weeks.  The team members taught between 700-1000 Kenyan youth, ranging from simple solar panels that run a motor to building and programming NXT LEGO robots.  Coach Greg Smith said, “It was exciting to see the Kenyan students learn about STEM, many of them for the first time. We were able to offer a hands-on activity to help them apply what they had learned.”  Besides teaching, students experienced the Kenyan culture by visiting several open air markets to purchase gifts, as well as by visiting a national park for a safari.
