Grade 12 5:00-9:00
Hidden Garden – Art Opening and Community Garden Launch
High Tech High Media Arts 12th grade class premieres a collection of compelling art and media projects in conjunction with the launch of their new community garden.
2700 N Woodworth Way, San Diego, CA 92106 (past Vons, dress warmly, this is an outdoor exhibition)

Grade 12
Autonomous Vehicles – Come see what our 12th grade engineering students have been working diligently on for the past semester: autonomous vehicles. See computer controlled, student designed vehicles perform various tasks underwater. Come see our unmanned helicopter fly, the student-made CNC Milling Machine cut out parts, and our SMART car draw the school’s name on the pavement outside.

Grade 11 5:30-7:30
Media Saves the Beach
11th grade students of the Scherer-Davidson team have conducted a 2-month long water-monitoring research project. Test sites around San Diego were monitored on a weekly basis and have inspired writing pieces, art projects, videos, photography and beach reports. Their work tells the stories of San Diego’s watersheds and the health of our local beaches, bays and rivers. Come join us as students display their work, explain their research and demonstrate the science involved in their projects.

A Teach-in on Native American Issues
For a number of weeks, students in Sarah Rodriguez’ Humanities class have researched Native American communities and the issues they face on and off reservations. Students have traced these current controversies to their historical roots and have created projects to present and display their findings through teach-ins, skits, photo essays, and more.

“Hero’s Journey” Short Film Premiers (6:00-7:00 in HTHMA Main Commons)
The concept of the Hero’s Journey is well documented throughout mythology, literature and film. The Hero receives a call to adventure, faces and conquers their demons, and returns home to share their rewards with the tribe. High school students face a peculiar set of demons. In our short films, our brave students battle with rejection, authority, insecurity, love and agoraphobia. Q & A with the filmmakers will follow each film.

Grade 10 5:30-7:30
Long Live the Revolution! – Sarah Barnes and Dominic Carrillo’s Humanities classes will be sharing their work on the subject of modern revolutions in world history from 1517 to 191. This exhibition will be in the HTHMA 10th grade commons, and will include poster galleries, writing samples, documentary films, and two-voice poetry.

WHAT: Hidden Garden – Art Opening and Community Garden Launch
In a hidden garden brought back to life from the 1920’s, students install art and media among the newly tamed flowers and fruits they cultivated over the fall. Three exhibitions include:

THE EXPERIENCE OF ENVIRONMENT: Science and digital art come together in sound, video and interactive installations to examine the social, economic and physical complexities of our environment.

SHINE: Illuminating our strength to cast away the shadows of fear and irrationality. Informed by readings over the semester and paying homage to the Japanese Shoji tradition, our Hidden Garden will be transformed into an illuminated landscape.

STAY GOLDEN: The golden ratio has fascinated humankind for the past two thousand years. Some of the greatest mathematical minds such as Pythagoras, Euclid, Fibonacci, and Kepler have spent countless hours studying this simple ratio and its properties.

WHEN: Thursday December 17th, 2009, 5-9 PM

WHERE: 2700 N Woodworth Way* San Diego, CA 92106

Media Arts Engineering: Ariel and Diana’s CNC Router Springs to Life

Posted by admin on 3rd December 2009

“The CNC router is able to cut out parts designed on a computer because the cutting router is steered by a motion control system and cuts on a level surface. The CNC router is located in the MAE shop and the motion control system and computer are located in the MAE computer lab.”

Ariel & Diana have been working incredible hours to make this project come together. You can see them controlling the great mechanical beast from the viewing window in the other room.

Humanities teacher Rachel Nichols partnered with the students and Karl Wendt to create a White Paper, or summary document on the process.  She also helped the students create step by step “how to” instructions for each project on top of many challenging and thought provoking discussions, and book analysis papers.
