Paul Banks Kids Visit Homer High

First grade students from Paul Banks visited the Homer High School CTE Hall to learn more about machines! “We learned about levers, pulleys, and inclined planes while testing out our cars that we made with the help of the high school shop kids who cut and made the wheels,” said Wendy Todd, teacher. “They saw the torch in action and were even welcomed with signs! This was an amazing interaction and I hope to have more of this type of thing in the future. All the kids—old and young—benefitted from this time. This is an example about how we are building a healthy community.”
