The CATA National Honor Society chapter is having a drive to collect new and gently used blankets and onesies that will be delivered to public hospitals in Honduras. There is extreme poverty in Honduras and families must provide their own blankets and onesies when they deliver at a hospital. For many families they do not have the money to purchase a onesie or blanket. Students should bring the items to The Den. There will be a prize for the first block class that contributes the most items. We will collect items until exams.
There will be a meeting for those interested in work on the tech crew for "On the Town" in Mr. Weis's room, 806, On Tuesday, January 2 at 3:35.

Computer Engineering students recently spent class time building their 1st computer. Out of the 19 students in the class, only 4 had ever assembled a PC before. During these classes all the students were able to build and test a PC. Since the first of the year this class has covered all the basic parts of a PC and how they fit together and interact.
