LIVINGSTON, NJ – Livingston High School was placed at number 38 in the nation for best public High Schools in STEM education (Science Technology Engineering and Math), according to the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

The rankings are calculated with Advanced Placement STEM test data. Using 2011 graduates as a starting point, 500 gold medal schools from the 2013 Best High School rankings are evaluated in the rankings. Of those schools, 250 earned a numerical rank for their STEM achievement.

According to the article accompanying the U.S. News report, early exposure to the type of subjects taught at LHS is integral for preparing High School graduates to eventually fill the millions of jobs waiting for technically skilled workers.

Assemblyman John McKeon (D-Essex/Morris) recently received a tour of Livingston High School’s technology wing. The wing includes classrooms for Robotics, Stagecraft, Wood, CAD engineering, Architecture, Transportation, and Automotive.

In these classes, students learn and build energy efficient vehicles and robots, and build Broadway-worthy sets for the stage.

Recently, the students have designed and built a vehicle for the Shell Eco-Marathon. LHS was the only New Jersey High School to compete.

Earlier in the year, after Hurricane Sandy, architecture students at Livingston High School used computer-aided design (CAD) to come up with blueprints to rebuild the Jersey Shore. Their homes were not only designed to rebuild the Jersey Shore, but to weather the next mega storm.

Livingston middle school was also presented with a national Magna award for the achievements of their female engineering club, the FemGineers of Heritage. And lastly, sixth grade technology teacher, Aleksandr Sadiwnyk of Mt. Pleasant Middle School, received a NJ award for developing his student’s technological literacy and advocating for STEM education.

A Royal Pain

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
