Hard Winter for THS Academic Decathletes Results in 3rd Place Finish

The Trumbull High School Academic Decathlon Team finished 3rd in the Connecticut Academic Decathlon competition held on Saturday March 1, 2014 in Waterbury, CT. Individual team members scored highly in many of the events, taking top honors in several, but an unforeseen absence and an inability to retain all team members in the hastily rescheduled event proved detrimental in the team’s effort to unseat New Fairfield High School as state champs.

Students’ Entrepreneurship Experience

Alison Kuznitz
EE Senior Opinions Editor

On the very first day of school, Mr. Manuel told his students enrolled in the Entrepreneurship elective that at the end of the semester, they would be walking away with a check from the class.

All the way back in September, it sounded too good to be true that students could actually get paid by taking a class. Yet, Mr. Manuel’s words are finally becoming a reality after months of learning about famous entrepreneurs, market research, and more. Since last week, the two Entrepreneurship classes have certainly been busy with the launch of their new products on sale.

Trumbull Firefighters Run in Tunnel to Towers Race

By Trumbull Times on October 8, 2013

On Sunday, Sept. 29, four members of Trumbull’s Long Hill Fire Department, two members of the Trumbull Center Fire Department and three members of the Nichols Fire Department joined over 25,000 people running the 12th annual Tunnel to Towers Race in New York City.

The run commemorates FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller, who was off duty on 9/11, ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to ground zero wearing all of his bunker gear, located his crew and, unfortunately, perished with 342 of his fellow firefighters when the towers fell.

STEM Challenge

During this year, four dedicated students, Alexa Simpson, Chris Stella, Kevin Crossley and Ravina Hingorani, from Trumbull High School, came together to work on the Sikorsky STEM Challenge. They were asked to research the Aileron of the F4U Corsair and eventually redesign it. Over the course of six reports, they worked alongside mentors from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. On Saturday, May 4, 2013, these students presented in front of a panel of five judges in the Connecticut Student Innovation Expo in the Convention Center in Hartford and won third place in the state. Congratulations to these students for their hard work!

The team has been planning, designing and building robots for the tournament since the kickoff workshop in March.

This is done through a designed obstacle course that included other teams’ obstructing robots.

THS We the People – 8th in the Nation!

Good Morning Trumbull High School!

As you probably have heard, our We the People team placed 8th in the Nation at the National Finals this weekend. ! It was an amazing experience. The students testified for 15 minutes in the House Financial Services Committee Hearing Room. Some of their judges were state Supreme Court justices and law school professors. The kids (young adults but “kids” to me) were confident and poised. The judges were impressed with their preparation, knowledge and passion. I’m so proud of all of them! I’ve attached a few pictures from our weekend.
