As you know, our EPICS program began as a collaboration between Mrs. Mambrino, Ms. Reil, and Mrs. Wyman. Last year Mr. Ward joined the program, assisting student teams with their construction projects. We are pleased to announce that this year, Ms. Bond Choquette has joined the EPICS faculty as an Independent Study moderator, and Mr. Hestenes will be working not only with the Independent Study teams, but with the EPICS classes as well. His expertise will allow us to use our new EPICS workshop for many of our smaller construction projects freeing up Mr Ward so that we won't have to have to compete with set design for upcoming plays and so that he can have his sculpture classes develop their own EPICS projects. We will still use Mr. Ward's design expertise and the scene shop for larger projects, but our workshop will provide space for many of our smaller projects.
