Odell teaches rocket-y goodness

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are all apart of Fortuna Union High’s new educational course S.T.E.M physics, with all of these brilliant ideas jammed into one great course, a course being taught by science and DATA teacher Mr. Errin Odell.

Odell has been teaching here at Fortuna High for 16 years, developing new courses and ideas for students who want to try something new and interesting. Having already taught physical science in the years before gives Odell the upperhand on this subject.

The projects involved in this class range from stomp rocket calculations, to creating trebuchets and learning the flight and velocity of launched objects. Since day one, Odell has taught his students with hands-on activities. Every project in this class has a goal, with a mathematical formula behind it.

Jackson, a senior, enjoys science, technology, and writing.
