Four acrobats enter the gymnasium floor and get in position. The signal goes off. The music starts pumping and the group begins their routine with synchronized jumping, dancing and tumbling. They create a pyramid and the little guy goes soaring through the air. Then they begin ipping and everyone is in the air. This is a day in the life of an acrobatic gymnast.
Atholton’s Varsity Volleyball team is the reigning state champion for the 3A division and determined to go back-to-back.
Imagine being taught by a hologram. A projection of your teacher stands in front of the class–you can see and hear her teaching, but she is not really there. Students in Ms. Liu’s sixth period Chinese class have a similar experience. Their teacher is not in the Atholton classroom, but rather is live broadcasted to multiple Howard County schools from Reservoir High.
