    Mushi: Why Americans Reject the Wonderful World of Eating Insects

    While the rest of the world practices entomophagy (eating insects), America’s western ethnocentric views prevent Americans from regularly practicing this. Most Americans have a preconception that entomophagy is disgusting and bizarre. It becomes easy for Americans to look down on and judge the people of a culture that eats insects. Unaccepting of this foreign practice, Americans continue unsustainable, impractical, and unbeneficial practices that fail to efficiently feed people.

    Fueling the Future: Inducing Stress in Chlorella Sorokiniana to Optimize Production of Microalgal Biofuels

    Starving microalgae of essential nutrients causes it to stockpile fat (oil) that can be harvested for transportation fuel.  Can growing it in wastewater save money and allow ‘biofuel’ to compete at the gas pump?

  • FSHA Laptop Program Survey for Parents

    It's hard to believe, but we are now in the sixth year of our 1:1 laptop program at FSHA. We have made small tweaks over the years, but our devices, policies and management practices have remained relatively unchanged since we rolled it out back in 2012.  

    Now is a good time to take a critical look at the program to see if the devices, policies, management and even ownership model are still meeting the needs of our community. As part of that effort, we are asking current parents a few questions to gauge your satisfaction with this program. Please take a few moments to participate in this very brief survey. Your thoughtful responses will help us shape the program moving forward.
