We started our day with two visitors, Bob Bailey and Bill Buchholz, who came with their car, Dirigo. They shared their experience with designing, building and testing the three wheel wonder that gets 90 mpg and does 75 mph.
Students got to hear from two extraordinary innovative, insightful and skilled craftsmen who turned their talent to trying to create a world friendly, efficient, functional and beautiful vehicle. Thanks to the team for stepping out and having a go at it and to Bob and Bill for their time this morning with us.

Watch for Dirigo's entry in a cross country contest next summer.

8th grade will be taking the math comp test on Nov. 5th @ 8:35 - 10:30.

On Wednesday morning there will be an interesting car in the parking lot. We are lucky to have two of the builders/designers coming over to share what they have been up to for about a year as they create this car for the Auto X prize.

Here is a link to a write up about the car.

This is an amazing project that is a Mid-Coast Maine team.   Can't wait!

Monday morning will be a performance by Heartwood Theater for our school community. The production is Ivan and Grey Wolf.

Heartwood will be coming back to work with students a number of times throughout the year. For the middle school it will be the last week in February to put together a performance with the students.
