Wednesday, 9 April was very eventful...As part of the science curriculum and in conjunction with our partners at the Adler Planetarium's Far Horizons Project , Cadets launched a balloon from Kankakee airport into the atmosphere to a height of almost 90,000ft. They chased the balloon on paved and unpaved roads via GPS for 2 hours until it landed in West Lafayette, IN in a tree. Locals helped our efforts...click on link below for news article.   http://www.jconline.com/article/20140410/NEWS/304100014/Experiment-drops-from-near-space-into-tree-near-Battle-Ground?gcheck=1&nclick_check=1

This past Saturday, April 5, the Adler again hosted Operation Airlift at the Air Force Academy High School. It was another great event and we had strong turnout from Adler staff, volunteers, STEM mentors, students, and teachers!   For the first time this year, four other schools participated attend in addition to the Air Force Academy freshmen. A total of 50 students were divided up into 8 teams that competed against each other to create the most unique and functional high-altitude balloon payloads for a shot at impressing the Far Horizons project team (aka Ken and Cynthia). They were supported by their school teachers, Adler staff and Chicago STEM professionals who are part of the Adler's STEM Mentor community. This competition capped off a year of either field trips or after school club activities for these young people.   Check out the amazing photos here: http://imgur.com/a/rnght   Also thanks to the Far Horizons team for always being willing to be part of Operation Airlift. The kids are always in awe to see the balloons and be able to talk with you all!   Finally, we all greatly appreciate all the STEM mentors for being the primary contacts for students, AFAHS teachers and security staff for the use of the school, and all Adler staff and volunteers that came over to help throughout the day.   Here are some details on the turnout: * 23 AFAHS freshman + 27 Near Space Explorers after school club students  (Hancock High School, Chicago Military Academy, Thorp Scholastic Academy, and Haines Elementary) * 6 AFAHS teachers and staff  * 4 teachers from Near Space Explorers after school clubs * 5 Chicago STEM professional mentors * 6 Adler teen volunteers and YLC members * 11 Adler staff    Thanks again to everyone involved!

Those students who have been accepted to the AFAHS for the Fall of 2014 should ensure your 8th grade guidance counselor projects you in the Chicago Public School system's electronic system.  Once you return your 'accpetance' letter to AFAHS, please talk with your 8th grade guidance counselor and ask/remind them to 'project' you as attending AFAHS for Fall 2014.

Greeting Parents,   Safety is always our number one priority.  Keeping with CPS safety and security guidelines the following policies and procedures must take effect immediately:    Students will no longer be able to bring beverages of any kind into the building.  This will include but not limited to water, pop, soda, juice, coffee, Gatorade, monster or energy drinks, etc.  Students will be allowed to bring in empty containers to get water from the water fountain. Students will not be allowed to bring in more than two types of snacks at any given time (i.e. no excessive bags of chips or cookies, etc.). All electronic devices, metal objects (keys, coins, IDs) must be placed in the students’ book bagprior to entering the metal detector.  Students can no longer place their items on top of the X-ray machine.  All items must go through the X-ray machine.  Once the student has cleared the machine, all electronic devices must remain in their bags. Additionally, once students are dismissed at the end of the day, they are not allowed to reenter the building unless they go through the metal detector or they are 'wanded' by security personnel or administrator.  All items must go through the metal detector. All visitors must comply with the AFAHS visitation policy.
