First student to repair and refurbish a computer on campus

Our first student to repair/refurbish a client (teacher on staff) computer during class on campus.

Congratulations to Nadia Carr for fixing Mrs. Cobb's ACER Aspire 4520 Laptop Computer back to factory new condition. Thank you to Mrs. Cobb for trusting Nadia and having faith she could do it. This was done by completing the following:

1. Completely Remove Virus by Remove/Replace OS (Vista Replaced with Windows 7)
2. Download all needed Drivers for the specific laptop from the manufacturer's website.
3. Installed all drivers related to all factory installed components that originally came with the unit
4. Created 2 new user administrator accounts (one for normal use and one for a back door use)
5. Created a password on both accounts and shared this information with the owner (very important :-))

Nadia personally delivered the UNIT to Mrs. Cobb with printed instructions.

Band Students Making their Mark

Band Students from this past weekend at Ware County Middle School auditioned against 500 other middle school students across South Georgia for a spot in the GMEA (Georgia Music Educator's Association) District 8 Honor Band. We had eight students audition and all eight score high enough and were selected to be a part of the District 8 Honor Band. They will have a two day clinic and performance in February with the other students that made the District 8 Honor Band.

STEM

In the STEM Lab, Mrs. D. Williams’s 7th and 8th grade students are learning the different concepts of Automation and Robotics. One activity that has allowed the students to explore different engineering techniques included building and programming a VEX Robot. The students had the challenge of planning, designing, and constructing the robot. Afterwards, each student had to program his or her robot using ROBOTC program. This allowed students to become familiar with programming language and challenges that a programmer might experience.​
