Over 25 members of Anime Sci-Fi Club recently attended a special meeting where the members prepared, served, and ate Japanese food!  From scratch, students made mochi, a Japanese delicacy featuring rice flour and red bean paste, as well as numerous Popin Cookin candies.  Most of the bite-sized items were purchased from Sunrise Oriental in Oak Lawn.      

Students were also able to test their culinary skills at Cooking Mama, a cookery simulation video game on Wii where players are tasked with “cooking” various meals, including chopping vegetables and flipping items in pans.   

Sophomore Isabella Welsh, Anime Sci-Fi Club Vice-President, explained her favorite part of the event was “watching everyone work together and have their own fun.”  She believes activities like this increase bonding among club members and break the monotony of regular meetings.     

Anime is a form of popular Japanese animated productions, usually featuring hand drawn or computer animation.  Colorful graphics, vibrant characters, and fantastic themes often characterize the work.  The club is sponsored by Jamie Atkus.

Glad to see the club is still up and running (Even though certain deans cut funding to most clubs like this that were non-athletic to support his precious football team which probably still hasn't won a state championship). Give credit to these amazing teachers who take time out of their busy schedules to head these clubs and the students for making the best of a lack of funding!
