Sinai Does Pancakes

The students had loads of fun printing – yes, printing – pancakes in all sorts of character shapes!! Thanks to the folks who came up with the PancakeBot, watching pancakes frying is now the most exciting show on the planet!

And of course, we didn’t buy no pancake mix; the guys made the batter from scratch by themselves.

We pancakeprinted Patrick! (among many other things)

This was one of our first prints. It took us a bit get the thickness of the batter, the heat of the griddle, and the pressure from the extruder right, but it all tasted good anyway.

Sinai Student is Published by The Huffington Post

A blog post by Armand Wolf – a senior – was published today on the Huffington Post. Armand is a student who has been interested in politics for as long as we’ve known him. His political views have always sparked controversies in the classroom, and now, it seems, they are a topic of conversation among the HuffPost readers. We congratulate Armand on this milestone, we appreciate his drive, his active engagement in the political arena, his persistent pursuit of his academic and career goals, and wish him success in all his endeavors.

In the article, Armand describes why he would rather vote for Donald Trump – currently the leading Republican candidate – than Hillary Clinton – the likely democratic nominee, even though Armand himself has always sided with those in the Democratic party. Armand, of course, is not eligible to vote, since he is not yet 18.
