Students at Stacey Middle School value different things and excel in different things. Some students value the arts more than anything, whereas some value athleticism. However, many students have made math and science their number one priority and will take any opportunity to advance in those subjects.

Luckily for a chosen few, a science camp called Tech Trek just might give an opportunity to advance their learning. Of course, it isn’t open for all kids at Stacey Middle School. For starters, it’s only open to seventh graders. Second, it’s a girls-only camp. Whether that’s because the students will have to share dorms with one another or to aid the female empowerment movement is unknown, but one thing is for certain, there will be no boys at this camp.

Have you ever been so desperate for a fresh start, a new beginning, a new life, that you’d go as far as selling all your possessions to have enough money to accomplish that goal of a new beginning?

Chances are, you can’t even imagine being that forlorn. Well, one couple was and their plan for a better life was sunk.

Nikki Walsh, 24, and her boyfriend Tanner Broadwell, 26, decided about a year ago that they were tired of working. More…

You all know Disneyland, right? Well, Walt Disney’s very own Toontown has turned 25.

What is Toontown, you may ask? Toontown is a “themed land” at Disneyland here in California where visitors can meet the characters and visit their homes which are constructed in a cartoonish style. It was inspired by “Toontown” in the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, in which cartoon characters live alongside humans. More…

Stacey’s robotics classes are having a lot of fun building the technology of the future. They’ve even built robotic crocodiles! Yes, that seems random, but that’s what they wanted to create. With this class being offered at Stacey, we could make robots to better the world we live in.

There was an article in the news that Raju Institute of Technology built a robot for people with arthritis and strokes. It was specifically made to help these patients read books without the struggle. More…

Guess what, Cougars? March 14th is Pi Day. No, it is not pie day, and we don’t do it to eat pie.

Pi is a math term which means the circumference of any circle divided by its diameter. Pi is an irrational number which means it is a non-terminating and non-repeating decimal.

In other words, it goes on forever. To represent pi you can use 3.14, 22/7, or the pi symbol.

To celebrate Pi Day, surprise your teacher with how much you know about Pi. The more you know the smarter you are.

Well first, we need to understand the history of the iPhone X. The technology made in the iPhone X started back in 2012.

Rumors of the new iPhone design began when the iPhone 7’s announcement, and it escalated when a hack on the HomePod firmware suggested that Apple would release the new iPhone. That was the iPhone X.

There are two types of the phone, one with sixty-four gigabytes, and one with two hundred fifty-six gigabytes.

Let’s get into the box that comes with the phone. It comes with a  wall charger, wired EarPods, and the dongle. More…

Snapchat Update Shenanigans 2

The new Snapchat update has redefined the meaning of Snapchat. Many of Snapchat’s users are asking for an ‘un-update’ because the new update is just not cutting it.

“Ok, so the new Snapchat update is really bad. It makes me want to not watch stories and it is very confusing to navigate,” says Lisa Ponti, 8th grader.

The new snapchat update has separated the social from the media. This means that the stories from your friends appear on the left side along with your chats and the stories from publishers, creators, and the community are on the right. This has caused some confusion with what time people’s stories had been sent and if it is a private snap or their story. More…
