EHS Foundation is moving ASE- Academy of Sustainability forward. The EHS Foundation became a Founding Partner of the ASE when it pledged $10,000 towards its setup and creation of a new pathway for Edison Students. (more to come soon)
Did you know Edison has an Innovation lab where student can work on Aquaponics, Genetics, Raising endangered species, Recycling or Re-purposing initiatives and even Robotics? Edison provides this hands on lab for our students to explore and experiment, and many science classes are utilizing this lab for their experiments and labs.
Edison High School’s Innovation Lab is in its 2nd year and expanding into our recently acquired outdoor area to expand current projects involving aquaponics, aquaculture, and fish breeding systems. Funds will also be used for students to collaborate and develop a vermicomposting program (using worms to create compost), a marine invertebrate tank system, a shark tank system, and incorporating wind and solar power to get our students involved in incorporating renewable energy sources. These systems will be designed, built, and maintained by students using STEAM practices (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)..
Additionally our current indoor lab needs to be updated and upgraded using the most current technology and safety equipment.
We need funds for building materials such as lumber, hardware, gravel, pond-liners, pumps, power tools, PVC pipes, large-capacity water tanks (275 gal. which we buy used), and water-treatment media for both our salt and freshwater systems. ( Please contact Mr Gardiner or Mr Grace if you can help donate in any of these areas)
Your donations will also be used to purchase day-to- day products to keep the systems running such as fish food, bio-filters, seeds, and gardening tools and other expansion materials.
In our Robotics section, we hope to create a moisture-sensing auto-watering system using the EV3 Robotics System by Lego. Other projects include the design of an auto-feeder for some of our fish systems using Arduino, which is a prototyping board.
Edison High will have its first robot in the First Robotics Championship (FRC) competition. We are also going to compete in the Sea Perch competition with the creation of our underwater robot.
Your donations will help students grow as they develop the skills necessary for college and careers in the future through the hands-on experience they receive in the lab. Students will take with them a vast knowledge of new technologies and a greater understanding of how science improves our school, our community, and our world.
Thank you very much for your support!

The Huntington Beach Union High School District and the EHS Foundation are proud to sponsor a ‘once in a century’ district-wide Pi Day Community Event. Our main purpose for hosting such an event is to raise awareness about our school’s math programs and related co-curricular activities. The focus will be on building community awareness in regards to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.) related opportunities and occupations.
This will be a fun-filled day for the all ages complete with a 3.14 mile race, food trucks, entertainment, BubbleMania and various STEM-related activity booths. In addition, this event will serve as a fundraiser for our schools in an attempt to provide our students with daily access to the technology required to educate our 21st Century learners.
Deadline for Race Sign-Up: Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Early Race Bib Pick-Up will be Friday, March 13, 2015 from 3PM – 6PM
