7th Grade eCYBERMISSION Team Wins State Competition

May 27, 2020

Congratulations to the ASMS 7th grade eCYBERMISSION team of Remy, Sam and Mark who won first place in the 2019-2020 state competition with their vineyard project. The eCYBERMISSION competition is an annual competition available to grades 6 through 9 which promotes students to apply STEM knowledge in real-life applications. For their efforts, student on the team earned a $1000.00 savings bond.

The vineyard project addressed the community problem of the unpredictable killing frosts in the Finger Lake Wine Country. They learned that, due to climate change predictions, New York State is predicted to be the new Napa Valley. Their solution prevented damage to the vines by maintaining a 5-degree temperature increase in the soil for the overnight hours of the killing frost. Their solution is green, cost-effective, and relatively easy to retrofit to all the vineyards around the lakes.

Sanitary Tech Tips

March 17, 2020

Let us get this right... even without a worldwide pandemic, technological devices can get very dirty. Along with regularly washing your hands and social distancing remember to clean the surfaces that you touch frequently: your devices. Follow these quick tips for properly taking care of your ASMS devices without damaging them.

  • Softshell cases are to be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle and air dry.

  • Hard cases should be wiped with a Clorox disinfectant wipe.

  • Tablet screens and keyboards should be wiped with an isopropyl alcohol wipe until it dries.
