Girls Who Code Club coming to HHS!

HHS will be launching a Girls Who Code club this fall! No prior coding experience is necessary, all you need is an interest in computer science. It's a perfect opportunity for beginners to learn from others, and be inspired by their peers to become digital makers themselves. Please see Ms. Fournier for more details. In the meantime, explore the Girls Who Code website and learn about all the resources that will be available to you - become part of the movement!

Be sure to follow the organization on Facebook and Twitter as well, to hear about all the cool things your peers are learning and creating!

1st meeting date and location to be posted very soon...

The 9th and 10th grade summer reading groups will be meeting Thursday, September 14th during the extended advisory. Room locations and details are soon to follow. Still plenty of time to finish those books :) Please contact Ms. Fournier or Ms. Belcher with any questions.

Do You Have What It Takes?


The HHS Library is running a 3D print design challenge! Sign-ups are taking place at the circulation desk through Friday, February 17th.

Your mission:

Design your own 3D print using an online program such as Tinkercad or SketchUp. Entries will be judged on the following:

- Originality

- Functionality

- Presentation (When presenting your design for judging, we want to hear the inspiration behind your design plan, problem-solving encountered while implementing your design plan, etc.)

- Whether or not your design complements your classroom curriculum (Bonus points if you can relate it to one of your subjects, or a class assignment!)

Judging (by a staff & student panel) will take place during Teen Tech Week, on Thursday March 6th! Prizes for the winner (including an Amazon gift card)!

Good luck to all!
