BASF Awards UHS Science Grant

 
 Tyler Kneidl, Science Teacher; Maureen Guilfoyle, Science Supervisor; and Michael Atzbi, Science Teacher accept a $5000 grant from BASF executives at an award ceremony at BASF Headquarters in Florham Park

Tyler Kneidl and Michael Atzbi both science teachers at Union High School recently received a $5,000 competitive grant from BASF Corporation in Florham Park, NJ.  This grant will be used to purchase a 3D printer for use in Physics and Engineering Classes. The grant will also be used to purchase two small plastic shredders, so that plastic water bottles can be collected in the cafeteria and recycled into filament for use in the 3D printers. This new technology is used in many occupations from advertising and marketing to engineering. The students will be able to create objects designed in the physics and engineering classes at Union High School.

Each year, BASF invites local schools to submit proposals summarizing their specific science education needs and how a grant would help them meet those needs. The proposals are reviewed by an internal science advisory committee composed of BASF scientists and business leaders. The grants are designed to give students a greater understanding of the role science plays in their daily lives and to encourage students to view science as  “a long-term field of study and possible career path,’’ according to the company.



 

State Championship

 
Led by Drum Major Patrick Phillips, the Union High School Marching Band won the USBands Group 3A New Jersey State Championship held at High Point Solutions Stadium at Rutgers University in New Brunswick on Saturday, October 18. They also won the caption award for Best Overall Effect.

"We're very proud of the hard work, dedication, and team work of our students. They should be very proud of themselves as well,” said band director Laura Muller of the band’s victory over competing bands from across the state. “Many of our band members graduated last year and the newer members were extremely diligent in learning the drill. Our experienced members mentored the younger students and finishing first in the state is a tremendous accomplishment for all of them."

The students began working on their colorful and exciting show entitled “Soaring” during the summer. The 65 member unit attended band camp in Pennsylvania in August and multiple rehearsals each week throughout the season to learn the intricate moves of the show.  Band Director Laura Muller credited the dedicated team of instructors including Assistant Directors Carlos Esquivel and Michael Hamilton, who are integral in creating and implementing the design of the show, Color Guard Designer PJ Tankard, Percussion Caption Head Steve Myers and additional band staff members with helping the students polish their skills. Assistant Director Esquivel thanked the supportive parents of the UHSPAC for their fund raising efforts and thanked the teaching staff members who donated time to complete the props that are needed for a visually successful show.
