Maia Dua, was selected from five finalist as Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War -- Girls Reforming the Future Challenge" Grand Prize Winner and will participate in a week-long internship at Marvel Studios. Over 1,000 young women from across the nation accepted the challenge to use science and technology to create a project that would create positive world change for their generation and beyond. Maia developed a “seeing eye” robot as a cost-effective and durable alternative to a seeing eye dog. The self-propelled, echo-locating “Seeing Eye-Bot” is made of readily accessible materials, making it more available to individuals of limited financial resources. Maia designed the seeing eye-bot to require minimal maintenance and to have a functional life span in excess of 7 years. Maia hopes her invention can address the needs of the visually impaired, who may be unable or unwilling to own a seeing eye dog.
Maia will spend a week at Marvel Studios, learning firsthand how STEM skills are being used in innovative and creative ways to produce some of the world’s all-time favorite characters and films.
River City High School is offering credit-recovery summer school classes as well as a skill-building camp for English Learner students and a "Summer Bridge" camp for incoming freshmen.
Dates: June 13-July 14, 2016
Time: 8:30 am to 3 pm
Transportation, breakfast and lunch are provided
Invitations were handed out to students last week and will continue to be handed out to the remaining students this week. Invitations were also mailed home.
There are three parts of the Credit Recovery Summer Program. Students can sign up for one of these options:
Attached are the applications for each part of the summer school program. If a student has not received an application and would like to attend summer school to recover credits, please send them to see their counselor for an application.
A student who received an invitation does not have to attend summer school, but it is suggested so students can get as much help as possible. Summer School classes will be smaller than those during the school year.
See your counselor or contact Mrs. Rodriguez or Mr. Hauptmann with questions or for more information.
Students -- especially seniors -- are reminded that there is a long list of local and area scholarships available on the Counseling Scholarship webpage (http://rivercity-wusd-ca.schoolloop.com/scholarships). The deadline for some of them has passed, but there are many scholarships still available for your application.
