Congratulations to the Circuit Breakers who placed third at the FLL robotics competition on Saturday, November 8th, at Memorial High School. FLL is the largest robotics competition in the world. Students from grades 3-8 use programmable LEGOs to create robots and then score points by completing missions at the event. In addition to the robots, student teams select a research question and present their findings at the competition.
Congratulations to Mr. Clemmer and his team! Demekan Arnwine, Nicholas Cryer, Sophia Filart, Kyra Hartley, Hawm Mang, Osaze McCurley, Chase Parker, Amira Pickett, JJ Poitier, Tiason Proctor, Patrick Stolfa, and Adam Tang. To see photos from the event, go to the TPS flickr page.
Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, and attended the Fine Arts Night on November 13th. There were students on hand who played their instruments, read a reader's theater, and showed off their US History and Geography projects. A special thanks goes out to Mrs. Berry and the art classes who created decorations for the book fair. And congratulations to Michelle Bautista and Chloe Eades who won the free books at the book fair!
Professor Barbara Fuller and a team of robotics students from NSU worked with our seventh graders on Tuesday, November 4th. The students rotated through several different stations that focused on problem solving and critical thinking. In one session they had to drive a robot through an obstacle course, in another they had to figure out why a robot was not working correctly. Throughout the morning Professor Fuller encouraged the students to respect one another, to communicate with each other, and to work together.
