Does the engineering flowchart fascinate you? Do you like to play with WD-40 or build different projects that utilize the principles of math and science? If so, the Jesuit Engineering Society wants you to join now. On April 9th, the Jesuit Engineering Society (JES) hosted a research booth at the Environmental Education Initiative (EEI) at Fair Park in Dallas with hopes...
Okay. While poison and acid may not have been in there, their molecular structures were. Rows upon rows of styrofoam ball-and-stick models in front of colorful tri-fold poster boards covered the blue carpet, adding up to more than 270 projects total. On April 18th and 19th, sophomore chemistry students displayed their completed molecule projects. Each student was given their own...

These scientists play a pivotal role in discovering what happened at the scene, able...

The tombstones varied in shape, size, color, and design, the uniqueness of each headstone reflecting the...
One of Jesuit's best hands on summer courses is the Marine Biology program run by Assistant Principal of Academics Mr. Ben Kirby and biology teacher Dr. Todd Gruninger. The course consists of two weeks in June dedicated to the classroom conducting experiments, learning the ins and outs of marine life, and then taking a week long trip to the...
Whenever a Jesuit student thinks of red hair and biology, only the famous Mrs. Jones could come to mind.
