Mini Challenge
Marysville ECHS thanks Mr. Bruce Daniels and Honda Marysville for their support of our summer bridge design challenge!  Our summer bridge program was held June 26th and 27th for our incoming students. 130 students were in attendance.  They were presented with a mini design challenge and attended informative sessions on topics that included: Mastery Learning, What is an Early College High School?, Welcome to Columbus State Community College, Expectations of Trust and Our Design Process.

Many, many thanks to Mr. Bruce Daniels of Honda Marysville for his support of our design challenge. Not only did he and his staff deliver 5 cars for our students to use, but he kicked off the challenge for our summer bridge design challenge: Students were charged with having to take a group shot beside a Honda vehicle without physically touching the camera. All 33 groups were able to complete the task and then worked on an advertisement to accompany the picture. Students ended the summer bridge by presenting their designs to parents and visitors. This allowed students to use our design cycle of Identify, Plan, Create and Communicate as they worked through their design challenge.
A make-up date is scheduled for students who were not able to attend the summer bridge program.  It will be held August 11 from 9:00-11:00 and details will be sent to students in August. Follow us on Twitter!  @MarysvilleECHS is currently at 47 tweets and 44 followers but these numbers will be expanding! We have posted lots of pictures and comments from our summer bridge program and will continue to showcase all of our events through Twitter!

Strong Industry Partnerships Impresses Ohio STEM Committee

April 11,2014 – As a recipient of Ohio’s Straight A Fund Innovation Grant, Marysville
Exempted Village School District is establishing a STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics) Early College High School which will open next
August. Marysville Exempted Village School District along with Columbus State Community College, Honda, Union County Chamber of Commerce, EdWorks, and Ohio Hi Point have partnered to establish Ohio’s first manufacturing related STEM Early College High School. Embedded in this mission is the goal to produce critical, independent thinkers who value diversity, effective communication, innovation, problem solving, and service to others. 
On April 10 the Ohio Department of Education STEM Committee formally designated the school as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) School. Marysville Early College High School joins seven other schools that were approved or provisionally approved. “The STEM Committee was impressed by the vast amount of partnerships the district has garnered, as well as the clear and demonstrated evidence of the role these partners are playing in the development and launch of the school, “ said Dustin Pyles of the Ohio STEM Learning Network.

“The vision of creating a STEM school has been a collaborative process including staff, parents, students, community members, and industry leaders. We are so excited to see this vision grow into a reality for Marysville. This is truly the first step in an enormous journey full of opportunity for our entire community ,” says MEVSD Superintendent Diane Mankins.

Educational Tour
The 2014 spring break tour was a total success with 19 students and 3 MHS chaperones traveling to Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Krakow, Budapest and the extermination camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau. A few of the highlights of the tour were historical sites in Berlin like ‘the wall’, Reichstag building, Brandenburg Gate; and then on to other cities to tour city
centers, Cathedrals and castles, the Wieliczka salt mine, and an evening cruise on the Danube River to see the beautiful buildings and lights of Budapest. It was remarkable to see the communist side including getting a routine border stop for passport verifications.
