Twenty John Stark students traveled to Costa Rica during February break as part of their year-long, for credit class for either science with Ms. Zaffers or Spanish with Mr. Turner. The trip included many excursions including visiting a local school to deliver school supplies collected by the JS Spanish Honor Society and to a working farm.

The following students were on the trip: Lucas Anderson, Nicole Beeso, Lizzie Brandt, Meghan Brown, Evelyn Cameron, Derek Clark, Kyle Clements, Kelsey Dobbins, Keith Filleul, Maddie Janelle, Kylee Frink-Kendrick, Courtney Gagnon, Jake Glover, Andrew Greene, Liz Neal, Jessie Osgood, Sam Paris, Alex Story, Stephanie Wetherbee, and Bella - Rose Zarrella. In addition to Mr. Turner and Ms. Zaffers other John Stark travelers on the trip included Ms. Harpring, Mr. Sullivan, Ms. McCune, and Madame Bliss (retired).
Always at the ready to make science a hands-on learning experience, Mr. Jake Morrill’s accelerated physics class went to the Atrium at John Stark to put their calculations to the test. As part of a unit on conservation of energy, students had to determine the maximum “bungee jump” height for the mass to fall and be stopped by the elastic band bungee cord. Students also conducted experiments calculating the strength of the elastic bands that were used to make the bungee cord.
