Ambassadors at Dancing with the Stars
On Saturday evening, the Raider Ambassadors volunteered their time and services to the Good Shepherd School at their annual Dancing with the Stars event held at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel. The Raiders helped to seat the guests, acted as ushers, and collected voting ballots throughout the evening. This event had over 900 guests in attendance including most of the cast of NCIS: New Orleans, actress Annie Potts, and the 610 Stompers, among others. There was also some Raider presence on the dance floor as Fr. Tim Hedrick '00 donned his dancing shoes to help raise money for Good Shepherd. The last dancing couple of the evening also had ARHS connections as Guerre Fabacher '97 and Stephani Kammer, Chapellette director, paired together to bring the "Dirty Dancing" dance to life. In the end, over $360,000 was raised for a good cause.
Weidenbacher: Half-Life Lab
Mr. Weidenbacher's Physical Science classes recently studied the term “half-life” and how it is related to radioactive elements. Prior to the lab activity, students traced the decay of an element over a ten-week period. Then, students had to identify the decay of Uranium-235 through twelve steps, involving alpha and beta particles being emitted, finishing with an isotope of lead. The purpose of the pictured lab activity was to determine the half-life of the element M&Mium. The students worked together following proper procedure ensuring all radioactive active atoms in the group have decayed. Students will then conclude their lab activity with the construction of a graph of N (number of decayed atoms) as a function of the number of shakes.
