Tech Center Tuesday is here, and today we are featuring a Tech Center staff member! Mr. Jerry Martin was recently named Garrard County Schools Teacher of the Month! Mr. Jerry Martin has taught Construction Carpentry at the Garrard ATC since 2019. When asked about his Carpentry Pathways, Mr. Martin says, "Construction skills are something that will always be needed. Even if the students do not work in this field post-high school, the skills that they acquire will always serve them well." Congratulations to Mr. Martin! #techcentertuesday #atcproud #gcsproud

Students in Mr. McDonald's Small Power class at GCHS recently completed the RC Tractor Pull Challenge! Students were able to explore tractor systems and structures and were able to experiment with force, motion, friction, gravity, and other STEM concepts applied to agriculture. Students assembled 5 tractors and experimented on different variables to witness different outcomes. They tried different gear ratios, tire diameters, weight and weight distribution, and hitch height. Students then took what they had learned and applied it to do their own "Championship Tractor Pull". Check out their work! #gchsproud
