VREP Showcase and IT Olympics

Eric Trautsch, Tyrone Grant, David Babbitt represented CHS at the VREP Showcase in Des Moines.

The Virtual Reality Education Pathfinder (VREP) is an educational initiative and partnership between government, education, and industry creating an ever-growing consortium of schools and businesses committed to bringing a new kind of learning and teaching to schools across the country.

VREP works by capturing student interest through the use of Virtual Reality and 3D. Students within the program are offered high school and/or college credit for their work and gain valuable 21st Century skills such as: study, computer, and technical reading skills as well as the ability to research, communicate, problem solve, work in teams, collaborate, manage their time, and access resources to accomplish important goals and objectives.

VREP is self-directed, giving students the freedom to decide what areas are of interest to them and what technologies to use. Working with peers within their own school and across the VREP consortia, students complete projects, research and design their own virtual programs, and create 2D and 3D imaging that is then transferred into stereoscopic displays to create immersive virtual environments. Students and other viewers can then interact with the virtual environments, providing learning opportunities that engage today’s learners. Students in VREP are charged with creating virtual reality and 3D models.  

Eric Trautsch, Nik Knobloch, Tyrone Grant, Devin Schott, and Charlotte Stinson represented CHS at the IT Olympics. The IT Olympics is a two-day competition, held on the ISU campus. It features high school students showcasing their IT talents and knowledge in competitions and presentations. 

Teams from across the state compete in four different venues: cyber defense, game design, robotics, and multimedia.

Regional Health Field Trip

On April 20th, Crestwood Students interested in Health Careers made the trip to Regional Health Services for a tour and informational session about Health Careers. NICC, Regional Health, and Crestwood High School have partnered to offer students an opportunity to tour the hospital and visit with a panel of employees.

The Grand March will be held in the gym beginning at 7:00 p.m.  A $1.00 donation is requested of spectators who come to the Grand March.  All students attending the Prom are encouraged to be involved in the Grand March.  Parents, and other interested people, are welcome to be seated in the gym for this event and to take pictures.  The junior class requests that those persons not attending the Prom leave shortly after the Grand March so that the dance may begin.

The Prom dance will be held in the high school gymnasium following the Grand March, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.  DJ music will be provided for the dance.  

Juniors, seniors and their guests will be arriving at the Prom at 6:30 p.m.  We ask that those students attending the Prom park in the junior high parking lot so that persons attending the Grand March can park in the high school parking lot.

Thank you parents and business for
making all these prizes available for students.
