Maker-movement gains headway in Starkville
SOCSD plans to create Makerspaces at every school
‘I’m just real excited
about the hands-on
activities to help the
students build their
critical thinking skills.’
West Elementary librarian
Stephanie Montgomery

BY MARY POLLITZ
Mpollitz@cdispatch.com

When Samantha Furby works in
her Makerspace, she’s unknowingly
learning life skills while she has fun.
The first grade student entered
the colorful Makerspace at Sudduth
Elementary School on Friday and
immediately began building a cube
— one larger than her — out of PVC
pipes. When her original plan wasn’t
working, she didn’t let herself get
discouraged — rather she learned
how to problem solve.
“I’m building a cube, and it has to
have six sides,” Furby said. “I tried a
bigger one, but that one didn’t work,
but I got it now.”
Furby is just one of many students
who use the Makerspace at Sudduth Mary Pollitz/Dispatch Staff

Youth tobacco

dangerous trend
Years of hard work to reduce youth
tobacco usage are threatened by a new
technology.
The use of e-cigarettes has increased
dramatically among middle and high
school students, according to a recent
report, and the trend has sparked concern
from public health advocates. In fact, a
2016 report from the Surgeon General
calls e-cigarette use among U.S. youth
and young adults “a major public health
concern.”
Those concerns came into even
sharper focus earlier this month when

Survey was released. It found that 3.6 Mississippi voices

The Bulldogs entered the

after a series of early season
blowouts. MSU has made it to the NCAA tour-

advanced to the Sweet 16 or further each of the

The Bulldogs barely gave the Longhorns a

“I think my whole team had a presence today,”
MSU coach Vic Schaefer said. “From tip to finish
we were dominant. We played our game.”
MSU earned its first victory against a top-10

history, MSU held a top-10 team to less than 50
points.
MSU also outscored Texas 48-28 in the paint
and forced 22 turnovers. McCowan’s 12 rebounds
gave her 1,109 for her career, breaking the school
record of 1,108 set by LaToya Thomas. And while
the score fell far below their average of 97 points,
the Bulldogs were in complete control.
MSU (8-0) ended the first quarter with a
