Eighth Grade STEM

Congratulations to the STEM team of Ellen Olson, Derrell Womack, Lucy Jumbeck, & Tauna Janssen who took first in their STEM research presentation on the Ethics of Robotics in the Regional VEX Robotics competition in Whitehall which qualifies them for the State Championship. They also tied for 4th out of 18 teams in the VEX Robot Ringmaster tournament.

Eighth Grade students interested in STEM toured numerous Ashley Furniture facilities in Arcadia. They were fascinated by all of the automation and robotics that Ashley incorporates into the production of their various products. Many of the students were impressed by how fast pace the industry works and wanted to learn more about the design process.

We owe Ashley Furniture a huge THANK YOU!
