Coach: Mrs. Cyndee Rivera
Students were awesome this school year. Our theme was Breaking Out, but was unfortunately cut short due to the shut down of in-person school. We will pick up in the fall, and as long as we can, we will schedule the Escape Room challenge we had planned.

We had a lot of fun with the students this year. We had several successes with our group as well. Maria, Avery, and Mohamed all placed in the top 3 for their grade levels while competing in Math 24 against students from all over the district. Rian was chosen one of 50 winners out of about 1000 applicants for the MEEMIC together movement contest. Her artwork is on display at MEEMIC headquarters in Auburn Hills, she won a Chromebook, and her winning also awarded $300 in supplies for our ATG group. In addition to these individual successes, all of our students had personal successes as we researched and presented Native American culture, winter holidays from cultures around the world, investigated pond life, painted beautiful birch trees on canvas, and more. We are looking forward to next year.

Theme this year: How things work

This year we decided to work within a broad theme to gain a lot of different experiences. Students in ATG this year have been learning how a lot of different things work.  

To kick the year off, we went to American Screen Printing to screen print our own t-shirts. We also created our own works of art with the instruction of our very own Mrs. Lee. 

Other activities we participated in this year include: 

Math 24 competition amongst ourselves and again against students from across the district. 
Cards to Veterans for Veterans Day

Stretching our minds and problem solving skills with puzzles and Perplexors

Running the school store and recording profits and expenses on a spreadsheet

Field trip to local bakery to see the "behind the scenes" of a business, and also decorating our own cupcakes

Videoconferencing with Cleveland History museum about the circulatory system and dissection of a sheep's heart

Building circuits with different materials to light up lightbulbs
