Due to the Covid-19 quarantine, WSHS Awards Night and National Honor Society ceremonies have been cancelled and will be recorded and shared with students and their families.
Mr. Deluca did not want the top 10 students to go unrecognized for their outstanding academic accomplishments so he along with Mr. Budd and Mr. Butka delivered the top 10 students in the class of 2020 their Invader Awards, Honor Society sashes, Letterman pins and letters and Top 10 medals.
We are so proud of all of our Invaders!

The Invaders brought home "The Bell" in 2016 and the Technology Club wanted to congratulate them with music and a little electricity courtesy of two Tesla coils. The Technology Club salutes the West Scranton Invaders Football Team for bringing home the bell. A high voltage Tesla Coil salute!

The 2012-2013 AP Physics class put together the classic oil drum implosion demonstration. The video shows the incredible pressure of the earth's atmosphere that is always present around us but that we seldom perceive.Uploaded Nov 01, 2015 by Scott Dustman
Members of the Technology Club built their own working Tesla Coil using parts from an electronic bug zapper and other electronic components. In the videos you will see that the coil creates a continuous visible spark by stepping up the voltage from 4.5 volts to several thousand volts. This high voltage also causes an ordinary florescent bulb to "light up" without being connected to any source! This is the wireless power transmission that Nikola Tesla wished to supply back in the 1890s. Junior, Geremia Gil is pictured in the videos.Uploaded Jun 04, 2018
Jacob's Ladder is a high voltage climbing arc. The 15,000 volt difference between the two copper pipes creates a very high electric field and ionizes the air molecules. The air changes from an insulator to a conductor and an electric arc forms that "climbs up the ladder". Created by AP Physics and Mr. McGraw's gifted students Danny Sallurday and Jake MacDonald class of 2016.Uploaded Apr 29, 2016 by Scott Dustman
