SEM wins at State Academic UIL Meet!
Eight students from SEM attended the State UIL meet on Tuesday May 28th, winning a variety of individual and team awards. SEM won its first ever State Academic Championship in UIL Calculator Applications and had a student place 1st in the state in a mathematics UIL competition for the third year in a row. With all speech and academic events completed, SEM is currently 4th place in the overall state academic sweepstakes standings.
Number Sense – 3rd place team Murali Subramanian Gaurachandra Das Yash Chandak Sirjan Kafle
Calculator Applications – 1st place team Sirjan Kafle – 1st place Murali Subramanian – 6th place Dong Hur Jonathan Lee
Mathematics – 2nd place team Sirjan Kafle – 2nd place Murali Subramanian – 4th place Ben Lawrence Minh Tran
These outstanding results are the result of countless hours of hard work and dedication by the students. Please help me congratulate these students for their accomplishments at the State UIL Academic Meet.

You can still purchase a yearbook!
We are seven books under our "break even" point for selling yearbooks verses what it costs to produce them. We have over 40 books still available. Please send your money to school and put in an envelope and drop into our PTSA dropbox, sign the "check-out sheet... and pick up your yearbook.
If you've already paid for the yearbook, please sign the check out sheet... and pick up your year book in the SEM office.

Mr. Carter's technology project at Townview Magnet High School-Science & Engineering in Dallas, TX
We are requesting ten LabQuest Mini interface modules to replace older ones that are obsolete, starting to fail, and are not compatible to other new equipment the we are receiving. We will be issuing new laptops to our students next year, ... more My students need ten LabQuest Mini interface modules.
My Students: Our students are taking a number of Advanced Placement science classes in our school. As we work to include more advanced courses, we need to replace older equipment to give them the best possible laboratory experience.
We are a Magnet school in a very large urban district. Many of our students will be the first in their families to go on to a College or University. Many are on free and reduced lunch programs. Most are from minority families. We offer these students an extremely advanced curriculum, and it is so wonderful to watch them respond and perform at levels that so many do not expect.
My Project: We are requesting ten LabQuest Mini interface modules to replace older ones that are obsolete, starting to fail, and are not compatible to other new equipment the we are receiving. We will be issuing new laptops to our students next year, and these new interfaces will work directly with the new laptops. allowing the students to make more advanced types of measurement, and experience many new and more advanced labs.
As a part of our AP Physics program we do many different labs. We try to include both older style labs at a fairly low technology level, and others at a high technology level. The equipment that we use in the higher technology level is old and starting to fail. Your donations will help us to replace the older equipment, and give the students a much better laboratory experience. « hide
My students need a ten LabQuest Mini interface modules.
My Students: Our class is a combination of lecture, recitation, and problem solving. By the end of the school year, they are expected to be prepared to take an AP Physics exam. "If at first you no not succeed, try, try, again." William Edward Hickson
Our students are very advanced and motivated young men and women. We are a magnet school in a large urban district, serving a varied population. The majority of our students are considered lower socioeconomic level, and will be the first in their families to go to a university.
My Project: We are in the process of supplying our students with laptop computers for them to use both at home and in their classes starting next year. As a part of their efforts to make use of the technology, I am supplying them with a number of enrichment materials, including both printed material and a set of videos that were produced at our school.
By supplying the students with advanced enrichment materials on SD cards for their school issued laptops, I am helping them to succeed in a very advanced Advanced Placement Physics program. This program is being offered to the students much earlier in the high school experience than is available in any other school. « hide
My students need a set of 150 SD cards to store information for their class.
Summer Biomedical Engineering Experience at UT Dallas
There is a Summer Biomedical Engineering Experience program being held at UTDallas late this summer. Early Bird Registration is $175 for the two full weeks of the program. Scholarships are available to students who financially qualify and we are accepting students who will be entering 10-12thgrades.
