In an effort to involve our entire community in the future of our children, Capital Living is honored to partner with the schools to include their respective “news”.  Frankfort Independent School Superintendent, Houston Barber, is the first to take advantage of this opportunity to reach outside of the district by taking advantage of this new partnership.  We invite other schools to join us in getting their news out throughout our community.  Because when a community is informed, it can work together to benefit all.

Frankfort High Panther

The purpose of this PROJECT is to dream, plan, and build an original creation of an automobile that will be called the FHS Panther in honor of our school’s mascot.  During the process, students will master and certify in Solidworks programs, develop an understanding of automobile manufacturing and systems integration, chassis and suspension design, automotive power plant design and assembly, auto body work and paint, and prototyping processes.  The students will address the software creation of the automobile and test the design with the help of CAD components and use that plan to shop for financial backers during year one of the project.  Year two of the project will consist of the physical construction of the automobile.

Raspberry Pi’s for Computer Science

 We are a small school district with limited funding and approximately 70% of our student body is comprised of free or reduced lunch. We are trying to build a computer science program in our school. In order to increase interest we are looking at ways to increase project based learning on a small budget. One way to do this is by using Raspberry Pi’s. They are approximately $70 each but are worth significantly more in terms of education. A 21st Century education for our students begins with an interest and grows with the ability to experience it firsthand. Being able to learn and experience what technology can do through one’s own exploration is much more powerful in sparking interest and growing it than learning through someone else’s perspective.
