Bosnian Culture and Independence Day Celebration

 
March 1 is Bosnian Independence Day, and the Utica Academy of Science held their first annual "Bosnian Culture and Independence Day Celebration."
 
On March 1, 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina became an independent and sovereign state, and only a month after the declaration of independence, it was brutally attacked. Between 1992 and 2007 the State Department resettled 131,000 refugees from war-torn Bosnia Herzegovina in the United States. 
 
Successful speakers, Bosnian music, the traditional folk dance “Kud Ljiljan,” poems, historical lessons, and cuisine filled the cafeteria to honor and celebrate the contributions of the Bosnian community to our community and the City of Utica. This March marks the twenty-seventh year of independence.
 
Guest Speakers: 
Robert Palmieri-   Mayor, City of Utica
Ibrahim Rosic- Director of the Learning Commons at MVCC
Dina Radeljas- Assistant Professor at MVCC
Emina Popricanin- Partner with Hodgson Russ, a law firm with offices across New York State. 
Amra Borovic- Senior System/Software Engineer
Merima Smajic - Assistant corporation counsel for the City of Utica

First Grade Goes Behind the Scenes at WKTV

On Friday, February 15, 2019, first graders went behind the scenes at our local WKTV News Studio. The students learned about the enhanced technology in the control room and the types of job available at a news station. #UASAtoms met the news anchors and watched from the sidelines during a live newscast. Our students were full of questions and excitement, and a few walked away saying that they would like to work at a news station someday. Thank you, WKTV, for a great visit.

Trekking in a Winter Wonderland

On Friday, February 15, 2019, snowballs were flying and laughter filled the air as UASCS sophomores trekked through the woods of Boonville in snow shoes. Scholars clumsily raced down a snowy hill, to see who was the fastest in the cumbersome shoes, resulting in many wipeouts fit for America’s Funniest Home Videos. Students made snow angels, had an epic snowball war, and shared lunch together in a warming hut, truly enjoying the wonders of winter in central New York. A huge thank you goes out to the Black River Outdoor Education Program for inviting our sophomores to Boonville. 

Drone Program @MVCC

The UASCS Drone Team is hard at work on a project that’s part of Mohawk Valley Community College’s weekly drone program.

During a recent session, students worked on design and 3D printing, as applied to drone technology.

Judge Bernadette Romano Clark visited Kindergarten

On Friday, February 15, 2019, Honorable Judge Bernadette Clark paid a visit to #UASCS elementary students. A New York State Supreme Court Justice in the 5th Judicial District of New York, Bernadette Clark visited the kindergarten class to read a book called “I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark.” Students learned about the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and how she proves that disagreeing does not make you disagreeable! Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has spent a lifetime disagreeing for the sake of justice: disagreeing with inequality, arguing against unfair treatment, and standing up for what’s right for people everywhere.
