WVU Nursery School children and Morgantown High School student collaborate on robotics

Six years ago, teacher Bill Gibson of Morgantown High School received a request by students for a class that would allow them to gain knowledge and experience related to engineering prior to entering courses as students at the university level. This request led to the creation of the MHS engineering program.

This past fall, Gibson’s class collaborated with the West Virginia University Nursery School for their project. Through a Skype meeting, Gibson’s students solicited feedback from the three, four, and five year olds at the WVU Nursery School regarding the type of robots the children would like to see built. 

WVU counseling psychology students matched to top choice accredited internship programs for the third year in a row

The Match is an internship matching program which places applicants into psychology internship positions at training sites in the United States. The program is sponsored and supervised by the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers.

According to Dr. James Bartee, teaching associate professor in counseling psychology at WVU, this is the third year in a row his students have been 100% matched within their top three choices.
