Honors Physics classes had a visit on Monday from Prof. Alex Rimberg, of the Dartmouth Physics Department. Prof. Rimberg talked about cryogenics and his research in low-temperature physics. Students also enjoyed a demonstration of superconductivity. They levitated small magnets with a superconductor cooled by liquid nitrogen.
The consensus of the students was, “That was COOL!”

Congratulations to the Hanover High School Quiz Bowl Team that won the New Hampshire Quiz Bowl League Championship on Sunday, April 8th at the State Legislative Office Building in Concord. Captain Hayden Smith and teammates Simon Herron, Jack Burnham, Oliver Minshall, and Liam Szczepiorkowski were a perfect seven wins and zero losses against Plymouth, Salem, Merrimack, Bishop Guertin, Portsmouth Christian Academy, Kingswood, and Fall Mountain. Each of the schools had either won a state regional tournament or qualified as one of the at-large entrants based on overall performance. The championship topped a very busy season of tournaments in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont and New Hampshire where Hanover often came home with top tier success . The tournament successes means that Hanover has qualified two teams for national competition in Atlanta over the Memorial Day weekend. Rose Luttmer, Eliza Rodi, and Wright Frost will join the quiz bowlers to complete the two teams. Coach Gabe Brison-Trezise has trained the teams very diligently, deserves a lot of credit for their success, and will accompany them to the national championship tournament.

Attention Spanish students (and their parents):
Spanish teachers are now accepting names for the Mano a Mano Spanish exchange. This unique, long-standing exchange occurs every other year and pairs an HHS student with a student from El Instituto Gerald Brenan, just outside of Málaga, Spain. In the fall HHS families host a Spaniard and in the spring the favor is returned as our kids live with their families in Alhaurín de la Torre. For more information and a greater likelihood of getting on the exchange list, students should speak with their Spanish teachers soon. Students can check the updates in their Spanish class to download the registration documents.
