Lego Robotics:

We took some time out of Robotics this week to write and reflect on the value of our robotos. Not just the financial aspect involved with this project but also the need to keep our things organized so the next class can have the same advantages. Practices continued as excitement and nerves for the competition really ramp up. 

Leadership:

We have completed our DARE essays and have passed them onto Officer John and the Wheeling PD to determine the winner! This week’s leadership lessons focused on collaboration and teamwork. We wrapped up our last class before the long weekend with a whole class challenge. Can they work together to complete all 60 tasks they each had to coordinate individually? Are they able to step out of their comfort zone in various situations and ask for help? Let the pictures and smiles speak for themselves!
