Back to School Night!

On September 16th, the BHS Booth Crew got it's first real job of the school year. With several students having walked through BHS' doors for the new school year just three short weeks ago, it was now the parents' turn. The feature event of the night was a presentation by Angela Maiers, a quest speaker who specializes in 21st century education and technological application in school systems. Mrs. Maiers' presentation covered an array of topics including the power that the internet gives it's users, the redefinition of what being a good writer means, and most importantly to BHS in this new transition year; how technology will change education both in and out of the classroom.

Working on the technical crew were Chris Coe, Pat Hanafin, Chris LaRocque, and Joseph Nosack. As far as technical details go, they ran Mrs. Maiers' 13-inch MacBook Pro into a VGA input bay located in the Performing Arts Center's orchestra pit. The VGA input fed into our projector up in the booth, which was used-as one would hope-to display the Keynote slideshow Mrs. Maiers had prepared.

As far as microphones went, they used 3 of our Audio-Technica wireless handheld microphones for those in the audience who wanted to ask questions, and an Audio Technica lavalier microphone for Mrs. Maiers.
