The ninth grade of Valley Torah has completed an amazing year. The girls have grown in their Torah learning and built a foundation of friendship that will continue to flourish throughout their years in high school. We celebrated the completion of our studies with an exciting trip to Santa Barbara. We enjoyed a picnic at the ranch, horseback riding through the scenic hills, achdus activities on the beach, and a sunset picnic and kumsitz in the park. This was a wonderful way to celebrate a successful year in Valley Torah! Mazel Tov to our new Sophies, the Class of 2020!
Outstanding innovation and creativity were on display at the 2017 CIJE West Region Girls High School Engineering Conference on May 18th at the Westside JCC in Los Angeles. Students from Meira Academy, Palo Alto, the Torah High School, San Diego, Yeshiva University Girls High School, and Valley Torah Girls High School, Los Angeles, knocked it out of the park with their design engineered devices. These devices solved problems that ranged from waking sleepy drivers to a device that helped blind people learn the alphabet.
The winning Project of the Year was a project from Valley Torah Girls, was developed by Adina Ziv, Meital Shafgi, Aviya Gaviel and titled “CS2 Car Sleeping.” Their project focused on a sensor that detected when drivers were getting sleepy and once activated would wake them up using a device that vibrates. With 20% of road accidents linked to fatigue, this project has the potential to save lives.
