  • Soup recipes perfect for cool nights

    There’s something so satisfying about making soup.

    It’s very easy to do; just add meat, vegetables, and spices to a pot with water or stock and cook. It’s the end result that makes all the time waiting worth it.      This particular soup is very interesting to me because of all the garnishes that really help to enhance the soup to another level. Feel free to also add jalapeno slices, diced tomatoes, chopped scallions or chopped onions as well to liven the soup up.

  • Rocket Science

    Carroll County High School students in Mr. Paul Stone’s environmental science class recently studied how scientists study space, the tools they use, how to design an experiment and aerodynamics. Students completed a rocket kit, but had to make at least one modification, such as adding or reducing weight, lengthening or shortening the rocket, or modifying the fins or parachute. Students then tested their design and went back to the classroom to reflect on the process and the outcome.
