Alumni Engineer Skis Honoring Teacher
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
Rowland Hall graduates Jonathan Zubair '13, Ethan Fedor '13, and Chris Fedor '15, have turned a friendship into a business. The three young innovators, who share a passion for skiing and engineering, incorporated Alchemy Ski Company last summer even though they've been making and designing custom skis for the past five years. The company is self-described on Facebook as "three dudes building skis in our garage," but these bros are creating an impressive grade of specialty product. This year Alchemy Ski Company donated a very special "pair of custom sticks" to the Rowland Hall auction laminated with artwork by former Rowland Hall biology teacher Peter Hayes -- a favorite teacher of all three Alchemy founders.

Block Party in the Beginning School
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
There is strong evidence to support the benefit of block play in helping young children understand and practice concepts in math, engineering, motor skills and social skills. To expand learning outside the classroom, Rowland Hall Beginning School acquired a set of heavy-duty blocks for playground use.

Bridge Crushing Puts Math and Science to the Test
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
On March 11, for the thirtieth-plus time, a team of BYU civil engineers set up their "crusher" in the Larimer Center and, one by one, tested the balsa wood bridges designed and built by our sixth and seventh graders. Each year the assignment is to craft a bridge out of thin (1/10" x 1/10") sticks of balsa wood to support a load in the form of five pistons pushing on the top of the structure. Each bridge's load is then divided by its mass to determine a ratio representing the efficiency of the design and construction. This is an annual competition intended for high schools, but because of our Middle School's commitment to and high achievement in this event, we are invited to participate each year.

Inclusive Conversations are Cooking in the Fourth Grade
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
Our students are well-versed in the importance and the virtues of inclusiveness. As part of our character education program, "Steps to Respect," Chuck White, emotional support counselor on the McCarthy Campus, has had many inspiring conversations on the topic of how to build and nurture a community with beginning and lower school students. These conversations resonated loudly as the fourth graders read and discussed When the Circus Came to Town, in which a small fictional town is turned upside down by the arrival of new neighbors. Some of the townsfolk are welcoming to the circus people, but others are . . . well, in the words of one of the characters, are "perfectly stinking."

Student-Led Chapel on Gender Identity
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
Every January in the Upper School, we dedicate a chapel to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His legacy inspires us to enlarge our consciences, identify those people who are marginalized in our society, and act in order to create a more just and equitable society. This January, students came up with the idea and the content for a chapel that explored the issue of gender identity from this perspective, focusing on those people who identify as transgender.

Teachers Compete in Tuttle Cup and Students Win
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
The Tuttle Cup is a friendly competition between the faculty members at Rowland Hall. It is two years old, and in that time it fostered observation and collaboration across multiple divisions and disciplines. The Tuttle Cup originated when Garrett Stern, Middle School math teacher, suggested a challenge to encourage teacher interaction across divisions. All of the administration enthusiastically supported the initiative; therefore, we created a team of representatives from each division to manage the Tuttle Cup.

The Ethics of SummerWorks
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
SummerWorks is an unplugged camp — no cell phones, electronics, television, or movies. Instead, Director Beth Ott and her experienced counselors emphasize slowing down, listening, reading, and learning to recognize and respond appropriately to social cues.

Eighth Graders Dig Deep to Analyze Snowy Environments
Monday, March 02, 2015
With the snowy Wasatch Mountains in our backyard, it seemed only natural that Rowland Hall eighth graders should venture out and investigate diverse winter environments. From Antarctica to the mountain ranges of North America, scientists dig snow pits to analyze various aspects of the area such as avalanche threat, the subnivean environment (the zone in and underneath the snowpack), water content, and climatology. A few weeks ago, the eighth grade science classes traveled up Big Cottonwood to conduct the same field experiments that scientists conduct in snowy mountain regions around the world.
