Middle school students recently met with WFS parent Dr. Taryn Fletcher, who worked as a teacher and school administrator for almost 20 years before writing a book and starting her own business to help schools incorporate more cultural diversity in their classrooms.
Last week, WFS teachers Kelley Cox, Ellen Johnson, Courtney McKinley, and Karen Horikawa participated in a gene editing workshop given by the Christiana Care Gene Editing Institute at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute.
Tony Cheng, Frank Murphy, Devin Wallace, and Collier Zug represented the WFS robotics team 7584, “The Bad News Bots,” at the DE FIRST TECH CHALLENGE State Championship on Saturday, May 9. The competition pits robots built and programmed by the students in performing a variety of tasks in two and half minutes matches. They had a dozen matches against teams from across the state and had a lot of fun learning and competing in this challenging event!
WFS 4th graders plan and design their own products, market them to consumers, earn wages, obtain a business license, and rent classroom space to sell their products on Market Day. Learn about what this teaches them and see all of the cool products they came up with!
