Sussex Tech to hold mock accident May 9 Sussex Technical High School in Georgetown will host a 'mock accident' on school grounds Fri- day, May 9 at I p.m. The purpose of the mock accident is twofold.

Sussex Tech's prom will be the evening after the mock accident, May 10. The second fo- cus is to integrate the learning of technical and academic skills by having students who are majoring in health professions or criminal justice learn by doing.

The following student activi- ties/assignments will also be con- ducted as a result of the exercise. Driver's Education students will learn what to do if involved in an accident. English students will incorlx>- rate their communication skills in the form of a writing assignment describing the accident. Visual Communication stu- dents will videotape the sccident and produce a news story from the footage. Sociology students will learn lessons of crowd behavior. Math students will make cal- culations based on skid formulas. Science students will conduct blood and chemical testing.
