Editor's Note: The following news brief was contributed by Lawrence Township Public Schools.
Students at Lawrence Intermediate School recently had an interactive Skype session with Tom Angleberger, author of the Star Wars character-based Origami Yoda book series.
Thirty-six students earned a front row seat at the session by submitting winning entries in a school-based contest: students chose either to make an origami R2D2 or write an essay giving advice as if they were Yoda.
The rest of the school, meanwhile, enjoyed watching the broadcast in their classrooms.
All LIS students had the opportunity to create an Origami Yoda with the author during the session. Karen Rubinstein, LIS Technology and Robotics teacher, coordinated the event.
