Grauer Shockwave Robotics - Outreach at Encinitas Oktoberfest
Grauer's Shockwave #3848 High School Robotics team represented The Grauer School at the Encinitas Oktoberfest event on Sunday, September 29, as an outreach event for their team. Grauer Robotics students demonstrated their robot and talked about the FIRST Robotics program to hundreds of Oktoberfest attendees. They also helped many young robotics enthusiasts learn how to use the controls to drive the robot themselves, which was a big hit with everyone visiting their booth.
Thanks to Robotics team members Nate M. '20, Ava I. '20, Jason W. '21, Joshua B. '22, Lourdes F. '22, Gabriel C. '23, and Mentors Liam Murphy, Daren Gardner, and Peggy Gardner and Grauer Community Coordinator Bill Harman for representing The Grauer School at this Encinitas community event!
Dr. Grauer takes a look forward to what school will look like in the coming years, based on lessons learned from the pandemic and changes to education that should be continued for current and future students.
The Visual & Performing Arts Department presented the 16th Annual Grauerpalooza Arts festival in a week-long series of virtual events on May 11-15. The arts are thriving at The Grauer School, regardless of the situations in which we find ourselves!
As a culminating project for their Civil Rights Movement unit, 11th graders completed "Voices of Social Justice" presentations. Each student investigated a "voice" from the Civil Rights era that was forgotten or misunderstood, and then crafted a piece of art that embodied that individual's story.
Grauer's Film Studies class hosted the Survivor TV show’s Co-Executive Producer, John Kirhoffer. Students learned how he started in the industry and through his hard work and perseverance, eventually became a television producer.
The Grauer School's weekly assemblies on Tuesdays are a special part of the school's community, and they begin with a message from Dr. Stuart Grauer. In this week's message, Dr. Grauer asked the students to think about what makes them intrinsically motivated to learn.
After learning this week of the passing of a friend, Dr. Grauer revisits times before the quarantine, to tell the story of a "survivor" who has some qualities we want to hang on to in these times.
