Tim Host was just a humble counselor at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas with a love of Pez. He was a beloved, integral part of admissions as he helped freshmen acclimate to life at Jesuit. He was...until he was murdered in cold blood. Crack teams of forensics agents were tasked with bringing any liable parties to justice. The investigators, seniors in Mrs. Stefanie...
The tall young man fully extends his right arm to the top of the brown pegboard, stabilized by four large brackets to the base of the machine. As he reaches full extension, still shorter than the peg board, the student tenses his right calf, straightens his right ankle by stiffening his toes and rotates on the ball of his...
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.

It seems unlikely, therefore, that a bridge built solely of toothpicks could...
Surrounded by hysteria, the police report to the crime scene, sirens blaring and flashing. At the scene lies a body, bruised and battered, blood splattered across the brick of the alleyway. Working like bees, forensic scientists surround the scene, investigating blood splatters, collecting fingerprints, and taking samples. These scientists play a pivotal role in discovering what happened at the scene, able...
Jesuit students ignite their Halloween spirit with a science project marked by a deadly twist. On October 29, sophomore chemistry students in Ms. Mathews and Mrs. Smith classes transformed the courtyard by the lecture hall into a graveyard filled with tombstones highlighting the individual elements. The tombstones varied in shape, size, color, and design, the uniqueness of each headstone reflecting the...
