Seniors' Last Day  

Senior Exit Interviews  

 Cedar Point Trip Seniors

 It Pays to do Math!!

Joe Kovac took 1st place in the State of Michigan Trig Star Math Competition winning $1000

Nick Russell took 3rd place winning $250

Nathan Dobranski took 4th and a second later with the same score Reis Ciaramitaro took 5th.

The Trig Star Competition is a timed trigonometry test with some very challenging problems.  The top score with the best time is deemed the Trig Star Champion!

Congratulations go out to all of you and Mrs. Dewey for training you well!   

MDOT Bridge Challenge

9th and 11th grade students worked in teams of 3 to construct bridges to see what structure would be the lightest yet hold the most weight compared to its weight in a strength-to-weight ratio.  Qualifying teams traveled to Grand Rapids for the MDOT Bridge Challenge to compete against 69 other teams.  One of our 11th grade teams took 4th place overall!  Congratulations Sandy, John and Suyailim! 

 Junior Cedar Point Trip 

It was hot and  sunny and it couldn't have been a more perfect day for Juniors to enjoy a day of physics and fun at Cedar Point.  Even though they had to do a grueling worksheet filled with physics problems they got  to work in teams to go on rides and gather the information needed to do it.   Some students said it made physics almost bareable.  

Senior Dinner

It seems like just yesterday when the Class of 2017 first stepped into MMSTC as freshmen.  You were a little nervous and at times, overwhelmed. At some point,  you probably wanted to give up--You had more homework and projects than any of your other friends.  You seemed to get less sleep.  But you did not give up.  You persevered.  You challenged yourselves. Some of you grew taller (not to mention any names...Andrew, Jack, and Daniel...)  Since that day, way back in 2013, you have all inspired us. You have motivated the MMSTC community to dig deeper and try harder.  You set the bar.  You, Class of 2017, are going to be the ones who use your powers for good and make a positive change in the world.   

WCS Robotics Team

The Steel Armadillos 818 took First Place in the Troy District Competition!! This is the first win for the Steel Armadillos since 2009. The team is comprised of students from all over the district and has four sub-teams; build, media, programming, and electronics. The team was hard at work over the course of the build season and with an Imagery Award from the Centerline District and their 1st place win at Troy District, Team 818 competed in the Michigan State Championship at Saginaw Valley State University. With their robot "Wednesday", this team realized that TEAMWORK really does make the STEAMWORK!

 Ski Trip at Hanson's Ski and Tubing Hill

Juniors and seniors had a thrilling time skiing and tubing together on one of the best days of the winter.  The sun was shining, but the slopes were great!  The first hour of our adventure took us to the tubing hill.  It was an All-MMSTC-on-the-hill hour.  Next, we took a ski lesson and hit the slopes.  Thank you to Mr. Supal and Mrs. Dewey for organizing such an awesome event! 

Senior Science Fair

After an intense first semester of research and presentations, the science fair season has begun!  The festivities began Tuesday night at the People's Choice Science Fair.  Spectators were given a limited number of Supal Bucks to finance a deserving project.  The excitement continued on Wednesday morning when researchers presented their projects to a panel of distinguished judges.  The top two projects were selected in all three sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics), and an overall winner was chosen.   The Class of 2017 made it very difficult for our judges!  Seniors researched some relevant and innovative ideas.  Great job seniors!

SPIRIT

We've got spirit, yes we do; we got spirit, how about you?  MMSTC does have spirit.  Spirit for MMSTC and home schools.  That is one of the benefits of this center--Students experience the typical high school life, AND the challenging classes.   

 Using Our Powers for Good

Freshman classes did a great job with the giving tree.  Our Butcher Community is bonding together to help out a local family in need.  Thank you  to all the programs here at BEC for making one family's holiday season just a little brighter.   

MMSTC Family Bonding

Broom Ball and ice skating... what could be better?  Whether students were just learning or seasoned hockey players and figure skaters, spending a couple hours together as an MMSTC family is always a good time.   Who was the MVBBP (Most-Valuable-Broom-Ball-Player)?  Mr. Supal, of course!
