Jemicy Upper School students, teachers, and alumni gathered for its 10th anniversary run in the East Coast Championship of the Kinetic Sculpture Race, the culminating event that would test the engineering worthiness of the vehicles the students worked all year to create. The school entered six cake-themed vehicles, dressed for a party, and made their mark on the day. This year, three of our six entries successfully navigated 15 miles of asphalt, water, sand, and mud without assistance, earning prestigious ACE awards.
The Upper School Climbing Team held its Spring Baltimore Athlete/Scholar Climbing Competition (BASC). Members of the Climbing Team have trained all season to prepare for this test of endurance, pushing themselves to send as many climbs as they can in a 45 minute period.
History II students took a trip to Washington D.C., where they visited Congressman John Lewis’s office, as well as historic sites, including the Lincoln, World War II, Korean, and Vietnam Memorials. The field trip provided an additional multisensory component to their studies and enriched the students’ understanding of the curriculum learned throughout their U.S. History course.
