STUDENTS INTERESTED IN THE MEDICAL FIELD

The Eastern Association of Surgeons of Trauma (EAST) is holding their 2019 conference in Austin in January.

 

Since 2012, EAST has hosted a Community Outreach Program in conjunction with its Annual Scientific Assembly. Members of the EAST Injury Control and Violence Prevention Committee (ICVP) coordinate the program and travel into the community to deliver high-quality, high-profile injury prevention programs around public health topics such as distracted driving, vehicle safety, gun safety, and a career in medicine panel.

 

This year, EAST chose Westlake as their outreach community! Approximately 80 trauma surgeons will travel to WHS to spend the day with our students discussing topics that are important to teenagers and safety. This day will be an excused absence and will not count against exemptions. It is considered an in-school field trip.  SIGN UP INFO BELOW!

Epicure Pitch Night

What happens when you ask students to use their creative minds to help solve problems revolving around the realm of our food industry?

 

They imagine a world where composting buckets filled with food waste are weighted, the data is sent to customer's account, then shared with the community to bring awareness and competition to go greener. Soon, you may see a variety of edible sporks, compostable storage containers, or shopping bags made with recycled clothes.

 

Students in Epicure Academy created a pitch deck with their idea to shape the future of the food industry and delivered their pitch on Thursday, Dec 13th to a panel of judges. Guest judges included Corporate Executive Chef of SWAY restaurants, Charles Schlienger; creator and founder of Trucklandia, Case Erikson; and CTE Coordinator, Pat Betzner, to round out the judge panel.

Winner of the Pitch Night went to WHS student, Maxime Guillet, who invented the idea of a compost bag that contains wildflower seeds. Plant in a pot or bury in the backyard to create a beautiful landscape with compost. He was awarded a $200 gift card to Sway restaurant donated by Newwaterloo restaurant group. Students are encouraged to take their idea and refine/develop in WHS business incubator program next year.
