  • Ottertail Power Demonstration

    Last week Mr. Brad Forness’ Construction Trades class got the unique opportunity to have an up-close and personal learning experience from Ottertail Power about what it takes to become an electrical lineman. Ryan Bosse and Ted Rohr from Ottertail Power brought two trucks; a bucket truck that lifts the lineman up to do aerial work on the poles and lines and a ‘digger derrick’ truck which is used to dig holes and set the poles that hold the powerlines. The pair explained safety procedures, what it takes to become an electrical lineman, and gave students who were interested a turn riding in the lift and remotely controlling the boom and auger on the digger derrick truck. Thank you Ottertail Power, Ryan, and Ted for taking time out of your day to teach our students about the linemen profession and for this wonderful hands-on experience.

  • Save the Bees PBL

    For two weeks in January, our 4th graders were on a mission to find out three questions: #1. Why are bees important? #2. What are some things that are threatening bees? #3. How can Central Cass 4th graders help save the bees? The 4th graders came up with many great ideas! They made posters to let others know that pesticides and other chemicals are killing the bees. They created PowerPoints to show off not only their computer skills but to also share with their classmates that planting flowers can help save the bees by giving them food. Some kids designed T-shirts to spread awareness for bees. The kids were able to spend time in the high school with Mr. Forness and his construction trades class to make their own bee hotels! They also went to the STEM center with Mrs. Forness where we learned about solitary bees, honeybees, and even how the queen bee becomes the queen bee. Students were given the opportunity to spin the honey out of the comb! Look at honeybees under the handheld microscope and trying fresh honey on crackers! Several students also researched what kind of flowers that North Dakota bees like and planted the seeds in anticipation of spring. We are anxious for spring to plant them in our gardens. The students did a lot of research, collaborated with each other, and found different ways to communicate their knowledge learned with others. Doing this PBL allowed students to solve problems and come up with a solution in a unique way. We are positive that these 4th graders have made a difference and their ideas will save the bees here in Casselton!
