Slam Poetry

1. The moderator provides supervision and input, the coach provides the student poets with direct guidance with writing and performance skills.

2. To connect through written and spoken word in preparation to showcase talents at the Louder Than a Bomb teen poetry festival in the spring. According to the LTAB website, the event aims “to bring teens together across racial, gang, and socio-economic lines. LTAB is a friendly competition that emphasizes self-expression and community via poetry, oral story-telling and hip-hop spoken word.”

3. The team is vital to the Marian community because it offers students a safe, supportive avenue for self-expression. The team is a unique blend of voices, backgrounds and artistries. Many students are able to find their place in Slam.

5. All are welcome to attend Slam practices on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Student Services. Currently, the team members are preparing from the LTAB festival in March. They perform on March 20 and 21 at 5:30 p.m. at UNO.

1. I am the senior leader on team Aquaphoenix. Mrs. Sharon Genoways is the moderator.

2. The mission of Robotics is to teach its members basic mechanics and coding software.

3. Robotics Club encourages Marian girls to embrace their love for STEM (Science, Engineering, Math, Technology) and have fun with their friends. 

4. The CEENBoT Showcase this year was memorable. For the first time in history a robotics team made it to the semi- finals on the driving course, and we came extremely close to competing in the championship. Also, I will never forget our attempt to raise money for Walk-a-Thon with our Glow-in-the-Dark Pacman.

5. There’s only one competition left this year, but next school-year there will be many competitions: CEENBoTs, VEX and Project HALON (High Altitude Learning Over Nebraska). We will welcome any student with a desire to join.
