  • HEM Art Gala

    Hammond Eastside Magnet IB World School accomplished an amazing event on Thursday, January 14, 2016,  during our annual Art Gala with the theme “Creativity Connects the World”.  Over 1500 students, parents, school board members, and community partners were enriched and overjoyed with the activities that included a performance of many children involving all aspects of the arts:  Dance, Drama, and Music.  The halls of HEM were arrayed with glorious works of art from clay, glass, sculpture, canvas, and many other forms of child created works.  A silent auction was held and many people said it was the best event yet at our school.  Bravo to our team of educators and staff that provide excellence in the arts to our children and our community.  It was a smashing success.  Shout out always to our leader, Principal Stephen Labbe. Pictured above:  8th grade students researched local artist George Rodrigue and his famous Blue Dog paintings. They created their own version of the Blue Dog. More images of the event can be seen in the photo gallery on the school’s website: http://www.tangischools.org/Page/27050

He explained that these Scarebots are used in catfish ponds to scare predatory birds away to protect farmers' fish crops. The Scarebot is patented. He explained that the autonomous robot was low maintenance, power supply assured, intelligent, adaptive, inexpensive, and robust. The students commented that, "The lake thing was really cool." The initiative "Speaking of Science" is sending Louisiana researchers into the classroom to talk to students.
