In the NEWS - D102 Aviation Explorers Club Building Skills for the Future

Since last October, students in the Aptakisic Aviation Explorers Club have been studying, constructing, and flying unmanned aerial vehicles/drones, a current topic in the world of business, military, and leisure. While few can accurately predict what this industry will look like in the future, D102's mission includes providing opportunities for students to explore and develop individual interests and passions. For these students, the excitement of learning about engineering and aviation doubled when a local expert visited a second time to provide additional lessons on calibrating the drone's GPS and flying it.  View the April 17 Chicago Tribune article.

CEO of Mad Lab Industries Inspires D102 Students

Last week, students from the Aptakisic Aviation Explorers Club (lead by Ms. Chausis) had the honor of meeting and learning from the CEO of Mad Lab Industries, Don Miller. Mad Lab is a company that designs and manufactures Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's). In addition to learning to fly UAV's, the Aviation Club is learning about engineering, aviation, electronics, and programming while building a UAV. In the middle of construction, the students had difficulty identifying required components and contacted the UAV's manufacturer, Mad Lab Industries. Mr. Miller visited D102, helped the students finish building a drone, and provided a surprise flight lesson. More about this STEM club.

Aptakisic Students Perform in Mosaic Show to Raise Money for Cancer Research

During the last week of March more than 40 seventh and eighth graders performed in Aptakisic's Mosaic Show to raise money for pediatric cancer research. These teens practiced many hours on acts such as the cha cha, rhythmic dance, singing, piano playing, beat boxing, and more. "The experience is priceless for these kids," notes Aptakisic Social Worker Carolyn Lewis. "They join Mosaic to share a skill, but leave with new friends and an emotional high that comes from within." The Mosaic raised $582.82 for pediatric cancer research. Thank you to Mrs. Choi and Mrs. Lewis for organizing and hosting Mosaic.
