Rotary Check Presentation:














Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Claire Weslaski or Tom Leuenberger know what the program will be.

The photos are from a Career Discovery Solutions (CDS) project that was recently completed at Starbuck Middle School with 8th grade students. The project was organized by the Starbuck CDS Steering Committee with Don Van Winkle as chair.  Rotarian Project Coordinator was Don Dunst.  The host organization was Andis Co., represented by Ed Werner who is a new member of our club.  Although Ed is a new member of Rotary, he has been involved with the CDS program for several years as a host representative and this was a great introduction for Ed to Rotary’s involvement in the Racine community.


Ed’s assignment to the students was to build a tabletop catapult using ordinary materials.  This was a practical assignment in creative product design. A number of catapults were built and students tested the catapults to determine their performance.  The last step in the CDS project was for the student team to present their project to their classmates.


The photos show several of the students with their catapults, along with Ed Werner and lead teacher Moriah Ade who both commented that the students did a great job with their CDS assignment.
