Amundsen Japanese Language Students Participate in Japan Bowl 2019

We are excited to hear that several Amundsen Freshmen in our IB MYP Japanese Language program participated in Japan Bowl at North Central College last Saturday. Japan Bowl is an academic competition for high school students who are studying Japanese across the state of Illinois. Since there was no official competition for Level 1, students participated in the Level 2 practice round this year. They did a great job and already look forward to competing next year. Congratulations to all of the students and to their teacher, Ms. Kameyama, for their hard work and dedication to the study of Japanese language at Amundsen High School. Great job!

Got a Problem?

Let Amundsen Design students offer a solution! On May 17th, AHS Design students will compete in our 3rd annual Makeathon where they will offer solutions to everyday problems proposed by stakeholders in our community. We are looking for stakeholders to work with our students on these projects as their teams utilize the design process to innovate and iterate a solution. Stakeholders communicate with students 3 times to describe the problem and to offer feedback on prototype solutions. They are also invited, but not obligated to participate in the judging process on May 17th. Interested stakeholders should contact Aleksander Rusic of Amundsen’s Dyson team at arusic@cps.edu. Parents, staff and community members are all welcome to participate. Thank you for your support!
