Weekly roundup: Kind wrestling, classified to credentialed, student scientist and more

It’s a brand new year, so why not a brand new title for our weekly post of Orange County education stories?

Introducing the weekly roundup.

  • A student from Kennedy High School in La Palma who recently created a lamp powered by bioluminescent bacteria is building another helpful project that would be powered by the heat of the human hand.
  • Offering a college preparatory program designed to help students fulfill University of California admission requirements, Early College High School in Costa Mesa celebrated its 10th anniversary.
  • The students and staff of A.J. Cook Elementary School in Garden Grove gathered on the blacktop Friday with community partners and local dignitaries to celebrate becoming a National Blue Ribbon School. Cook is one of three schools in Orange County to have earned the prestigious honor in 2016.
