Orr Middle School partnered with Green Our Planet to create an outdoor learning environment for the community. 50 volunteers participated in the build to make this vision a reality. A special thank you to Ms. Carr, our wonderful science teacher, for completing the grant application, coordinating the volunteering efforts, and supervising the build!
At the 2018 Vex Robotics Olympics, teamwork is a vital key to success. Our teams worked on programming robots, having them work autonomously, and a STEM research project. The best part is competing in front of hundreds of people and trying to do your best.
There were other activities teams could play while waiting for their turn to compete. There was a forklift simulator, marshmallow tower building contest, safety challenge, and 3-D games.
Going to the competitions at Faith Lutheran and East Career and Technical Academy was fun. We hope to be on the robotics team next year.
"Oh! The places you'll go!" is the theme for this week's celebration for teachers. A raffle of prizes by community stakeholders is being held the week of March 19-23, as a thank you for all their hard work.
