  • Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2015
     
    Once again LAHS  students were strong competitors at this past weekends NM State Science and Engineering Fair. I am pleased to let you know that LAHS will be sending 3 projects and 4 students to the Intel International, Science and Engineering Fair May 10-15th in Pittsburg, Pa. Your students will compete against more than 1,700 high school students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories who will be awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for more than $5 million in prizes. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. Intel ISEF unites these top young scientific minds, showcasing their talents on an international stage, where doctoral level scientists review and judge their work.

    I hope you will join me in congratulating your LAHS Intel ISEF qualifiers; Juniors- Jovan Zhang and Coleman Kendrick and Senior team project Esteban Abeyta and Ashvini Vaidya. Also, of note, Junior EliseAnne Koskelo is 1st alternate to the Intel ISEF Fair, should Cole be unable to attend.

    Jovan, Cole and Esteban have been STEM competitors since 4th grade, while Ashvini teamed up with Esteban as a Junior. ISEF is the ultimate goal for our students and these students have accomplished this for the past 2 years. These students and their sponsor have received all expense paid trips to the Intel ISEF Fair in May.

    Congratulations to your students, LAHS and the teachers who supported these students.

  • The LA Precision Rifle team traveled to Phoenix this past week to participate in the Navy Regional and National Championships.
    The Los Alamos team finished as the top Navy team in the regional, besting the other Navy schools from New Mexico, Texas and California.  Qualifying teams from across the country were competing in Ohio, Alabama and Phoenix Arizona for their respective service championships. The Los Alamos Precision team posted the high Navy score nationally, besting the second place team from New Albany Indiana by 5 points to take the overall Navy National Championships. JoAnna O’Neill was the top Navy individual shooter and second nationally. At the regional 4 Los Alamos shooters made the top 8 finals with JoAnna O’Neill finishing first for a gold medal, Samantha Miller second for a silver and Sam Wolfe third for a bronze. Rounding out the team was David Murphy with Holly Hayes as the team alternate who also made the finals. The team will travel to Ohio in March to compete in the all service championships. The Navy trophy will be presented at the awards ceremony there in March. A big congratulations to our team and this huge success.

  • 14 LAHS Students won Gold Medals in the National German Exam! 
    Those students scored in the 90th percentile nationally and of those 14 students 11 students qualify to apply for a fully funded study trip to Germany. Three students scored in the 99th percentile: Kathryn Delgado, Wilbur Wang and Tabitha Welsh. Wunderbar!!!
    15 students won silver medals and 12 bronze. There were also many achievement awards. This is an outstanding achievement because the exam is modeled on AP type questions and students have to be able to cope with completely authentic listening, viewing and reading sources. Frau Boshier is proud to teach such dedicated, hard working students.
