Students have been studying the impact of technology and science in the USA and in the Spanish-speaking world. One of the tools for students to be able to communicate ideas about this futuristic thinking is the different kinds of future in Spanish.

Students talked in Spanish throughout the class. Who said that it wasn’t possible to speak in Spanish for 1 full hour?

Build season was the time between January 5th and February 19th, in which teams were able to work on the robot that they would compete with for the entire year.

Last week members of the National Spanish Honor Society went to Tequilas restaurant for a debriefing and cultural meeting. All the members ordered in Spanish as they interacted with the waiter who was originally from Ecuador. All the food was authentic. The meeting went well and we had fun. Spanish will not only open more doors in the workplace; it’s also helpful when ordering in Mexican restaurants and having fun with friends and family.
