STEM Robotics

Three STEM Robotics teams competed in the USI/ASME competition on Saturday, April 6th. The underwater adventure themed event included challenges to navigate through a cavern, decide the safest route, avoid a volcano, move air tanks, avoid the kraken eggs in their nest and activate a sonic beacon. By participating in the USI/ASME Robotics Competition, they had fun, met new people, used their engineering and programming skills, and accomplished their goals while demonstrating what it means to have Raider PRIDE!

Classroom Activities

Second-grade students in Mrs. Hurst's class are studying about McMurdo Station, a small city and scientific research workplace in Antarctica. The students observed sea ice (saltwater) and sky ice (freshwater). Then, they recorded their findings to determine the differences based on appearance, hardness, weight, temperature, texture, smell and taste (optional). They used their findings to discuss the formation of brinicles and to make predictions about weather change and refreezing the salty brine.
