[GIRLS ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP ACADEMY] Rockets and Magic and Pies, Oh My!

Niah Overstreet and Yvenie Joseph, ‘21

This month, GALA students launched rockets at a private rocket test center in the Mojave Desert! All of the student-built rockets were successfully launched and went over 8,000 feet in the air!

A physician, Dr. Sanngkhae from the Center for Iron Disorders, and a Professor of Pediatrics, Dr. Bulut from UCLA, visited GALA 9th graders to discuss careers in medicine and pathways to medical school.

GALA 6th graders made plaster models of columns with the Institute of Classical Architecture. They are also learning math magic tricks.

The 6th grade Cultural Geography class hosted a pop-up museum and the Game Club held it’s first soccer tournament this week!

Our “Pi Day” themed Open House was a huge success. Two Vex robots built by GALA students were debuted, and Friends of GALA sold pies!
