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.
Union High School Student Assistance Counselor Lucille Williams wanted to find a unique and creative way to make her students feel connected. After seeing a project that was done at Jefferson School, she got the idea to use all different puzzle pieces to show unity amongst the 2,300 plus students that attend Union High School. The premise: students were to write what was unique and special about themselves on all different shapes of puzzle pieces that would be displayed and used to connect the two cafeterias at the high school. With help from the school’s English teachers, students took writing interesting facts about themselves resulting in a beautiful display of unity. “My goal was to make our students feel special. While we all have our own unique qualities, it’s important to show that we all may be different, but we still fit together,” Williams had to say of her goals for the project. “My job is to make the students feel comfortable and safe when they come to school, and having a special project like this is just one part of many different activities we do here at Union High School to help our students.”
