This week, the students presented their studies from the first trimester to the CMS community. Topics ranged from sigma notation in mathematics to weathering and erosion on the Land campus, video editing, and photo-realism. The students also wrote and performed their own play on the transition of mankind from hunter-gatherer to agricultural cultures. Congrats, class. You should be proud of your work. You are AWESOME!
