A homemade computer, liquid nitrogen ice cream and hockey for charity were among the projects tenth-graders took on at Fridley High School.
Kate Nelsen made ice cream using liquid nitrogen. Michael Lipa made his own computer. AJ Fredrickson developed an outdoor hockey tournament to raise money for charity. Fridley High School teacher Callie Bush posted photos on Twitter of personal projects by students she advised.
