Favorite subject: My favorite subjects include dance and finance. Having my favorite activity, dance, also as my major at LVPA makes it enjoyable to come to school each day.

Eighth grade students at Swain School this year have been involved in a science project their grandparents probably could not even have imagined in their grade school experience a few generations ago.

Using advanced Lego building kits that include servo motors which can programmed for movements on a simulated Mars surface landscape, the students have emulated NASA's Mars Rover mission to the distant red planet.

STUDENT PROFILE: Josh Wolper, Moravian Academy

Thursday, February 7, 2013 by The Press in School

Grade: 12

Family members: I have a mom, Sue, my mom's partner, Didi, and my sister Sarah

Favorite subject: I am curious about every subject, but in particular I love math, science and art. I love math because it is so concrete: a math problem has an exact answer; it just has to be found. I enjoy science (mainly physics and chemistry) because I like learning how the world works. Finally, I love art because at the end of a long day of calculating, graphing and theorizing, I can let my emotions and thoughts manifest themselves on paper.
