Congratulations to seniors Carlo Bocconcelli and Luke Johns, both honored as National Merit Scholarship Finalists. They are two of only three such honorees on Cape Cod.
They were selected from more than 1.5 million students for the award based on their academic achievement and scores on the PSAT/NMSQT exam. As finalists, they are eligible to compete with other top students around the country for a series of merit-based college scholarships.
It’s not every day you see a teenager playing with marbles and Matchbox cars, but this wasn’t any ordinary day, it was Rube Goldberg Day.
Seniors in Peter Conzett’s physics class assembled elaborate machines made of wooden dowels, plastic toys, metal and household objects, linked to work in a chain reaction to reach a simple goal: to flip a small car into a bucket.
They connected their whirring gizmos and tinkling gadgets together at All-school Meeting for one long run to the finish. Each individual machine had several components in common—a balloon, a coat hanger and some element that produced sound – yet each was different and whimsical.
Join us for fun and bid on amazing items, including a week in Paris, at A Derby Ball & Auction, Falmouth Academy’s spring fundraiser, on Saturday, May 3. This event features live and silent auctions, dancing to music by Paul Weller and Mark Elsner, fund-a-need, and a Kentucky Derby-inspired buffet dinner with Derby Pie and cupcakes of red velvet and mint julep for dessert.
