  • Building Materials Students Use CNC Router to Make Furniture for LINCS

    Privacy Cube

    Students in Mr. Cody Watson's Building Materials 2 class built a privacy cube for Ms. Frye's classroom at LINCS. The privacy cube will give her students a safe, semi-secluded place to go when they need to. Mr. Watson's students were able to utilize the CNC router to cut the holes centered, evenly sized, and round, which is difficult to do with basic hand tools.

National History Day is an exciting academic enrichment program that helps students learn about historical issues, ideas, people, and events. This year-long academic adventure fosters students' enthusiasm for learning and their love for history. National History Day teaches the skills individuals need for a successful future. The program's three central elements develop participants' abilities to: complete extensive research; critically analyze and develop historical conclusions about information they have discovered in a variety of sources; and present and defend their interpretations in a critical, yet creative forum. Working individually or collaboratively in groups of two to five, students produce historical documentaries, exhibits, historic websites, dramatic performances, and research papers based on an annual theme. The 2019 theme is “Triumph and Tragedy in American History.” 2019 National History Day - WHS Finalists advancing to State Competition include: Senior Group Documentary: Broderick Frye, Bailee Korf, and Emily Scherer - "The Triumph and Tragedy of the Janesville GM Plant"; Senior Individual Performance: Gio Anello - "Alvin York: Conscientious Objector to Decorated Veteran"; Senior Individual Performance: Madison Strickler - “Dr. John Galt”; Senior Group Performance: Nikita Hartzheim and Savannah Hill - "The Rosenbergs"; and Senior Group Performance: Anna Ejnik and Brandon Damhorst - "Kent State Shooting."

National History Day is an academic enrichment program for students in grades 6-12. Students select topics connected to an annual theme and complete their own in-depth research on the topic. This year, the annual theme is “Triumph and Tragedy in History.” Students present their conclusions by creating museum style exhibits, media documentaries, research papers, interactive websites, or dramatic performances. The school event is the first step in a competition cycle that can take students from school level to the regional, state, and national competitions. At each level of competition students share their work with their peers, historians, educators, and professionals in related fields as they compete for special awards and the opportunity to advance to the next level of competition. Participation continues to grow with more than 500,000 students participating annually across the nation. The National History Day program in Wisconsin is coordinated by the Wisconsin Historical Society.
