Advanced Placement chemistry students are taking advantage of refurbished computers recently placed in the chemistry classroom by the district's technology staff. The current video shows two AP chemistry students discussing a virtual chemistry kinetics lab. Students manipulate the concentrations of solutions and generate and interpret corresponding graphs for reaction rate. The virtual chemistry lab simulations are an outstanding resource for labs that may otherwise incorporate expensive or dangerous materials. These experiments are especially important for simulating expensive lab equipment that could not otherwise be utilized in a high school classroom and are provided by Dr. David Blauch and the Davidson College Virtual Chemistry Experiment webpages.

Secondhand smoke is harmful to everyone. Secondhand smoke is a combination of the smoke in the air from a burning cigarette, cigar, or pipe and the smoke exhaled by a person who is smoking. Smoke-filled rooms and cars have up to six times the air pollution of a busy highway. Secondhand smoke has been designated as a human cancer-causing agent by the U.S. EPA, the National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. It’s the number one source of indoor air pollution, and it poses a health threat to all South Carolinians.
Some parents don’t fully understand how harmful secondhand smoke is for their kids, but most of them do understand that it is dangerous. That’s why most parents—including parents who smoke—try to protect their kids from secondhand smoke. Please do not smoke on our campus.

Troutman turned her freshman year networking experience at a Hospitality National Conference into an eight-month internship with Disney in 2012. "Living, working and playing at Disney was an incredible opportunity. I hope to get back there again in a management position one day because they truly do everything better,” added Troutman. In addition to interning at Disney, Troutman was also one of the 500 College of HRSM students to work the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta last spring. She landed her final internship at the Chick-fil-A in Five Points where she was able to rotate through every position in the restaurant and got hands on experience with catering, events and theme nights. Troutman single-handedly planned a pirate and princess theme night that drew over 50 kids from the Columbia area.
