Advanced EV3 Robotics Club

Students from Mrs. Hurst's Advanced EV3 Robotics Club had a unique opportunity to fix clocks for Huntingburg Elementary School. Alberto Alvarenga, Gabe Dubon, Jackson Stegall, Alexa Taylor, and Grady Siddons proudly present the working clocks to Rick Jones and Eric Corbett (Not pictured: Edgardo Zalaya). Many thanks to Rick and Eric for this opportunity!

Audrey McAninch, a second grade student in Mrs. Tooley's class, convinced her mom the students could fix their clock, too. With a big smile and a hopeful heart she delivered the clock to Mrs. Hurst for repairs. Today, she proudly takes her mom's favorite clock home!
