Team Illusion Begins to Prepare for Seaperch Competition
Not much happened at school this last week as testing was going on, but the competition season moves forward even when we can't. The rules for the Seaperch competition this year were announced on the 8th of October. The theme this year is space. I know, I know, Seaperch takes place in the water, so what gives? People train to be astronauts in the water because the buoyancy makes operations in the pool very similar to the same operations performed in orbit. This year, teams will have to travel on the usual obstacle course, but they will also have to simulate collecting tools and changing batteries on the space station. https://seaperch.org/programs/2022-season/

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Introduction Mr. Gregory Hynes - Foundations of Technology Teacher
I am Gregory J. Hynes (ED.S) with a family of three which includes my wife (Dr. Joan Hynes) who teaches at Greenbelt Middle School and our daughter (Paige) who is four years old. I have attended a number of Caribbean Universities as well as United States based Universities to accomplish Higher Education Degrees respectively. My degree includes the areas of A. Sc. in Business, B.Sc. in Accounting, B. Ed. In Business Education and M. Ed Studies in Career Technical Education & ED. S. in Technology. Six adjectives that can be used to describe my teaching style are flexible, creative, exciting, culturally aware, collaborative and process oriented. This school year at CMIT North High School I will teach Foundations of Technology where we will use the Engineering Design Process to complete a Paper (the Ground work for the Project), Prototype (that should work/function to solve the problem) and the Slide Presentations (done Orally by student groups) to tell what problem that has been solved by the students. My hobbies are watching crime scene movies, exercising and playing soccer. I know that every child can learn if given a prepared environment and if they approach the course content with an open mind and positive attitude. I look forward to great interaction with students, parents and myself during this awesome school year 2021-2022.

Gregory Hynes (ED.S)
