Graduating K-Bots

Every year we say farewell to several K-Bots. 

  

It seems like only yesterday they were the young ones, the grade 9s….  

And now they’re off…. to have great adventures in university.
We wish you well!  Wear your purple proudly.

Ice cream party!

 We had an ice cream party today at lunch!  We ate 10 L of ice cream, with chocolate, butterscotch, and strawberry syrup, whipped cream, chocolate chips, and sprinkles!!  

It was fun to hang out together at lunch.  

And we are now stocked up on sugar for the rest of the day!  

The (now fully functional) robot came too, looking for dessert. 

We’re going to be at the science rendezvous tomorrow at the K-Rock center.  Come see us!

Making Plans

We had a meeting today to prepare for the science rendezvous on Saturday at the K-Rock center. 

  
We’re going to meet to set up at 8AM at the K-Rock center.

  
We set up our pit structure in a new configuration for the science rendezvous.

  
The robot is doing well.  We look forward to showing off all the cool moves it can do.

We also made a plan to have an ice cream party on Friday at lunch.  Our end of year bowling party is Saturday June 6 4-6pm at cloverleaf lanes.

Also, please sign up a team for the Rube Goldberg competition.  The deadline is may 29.

Bottle Drive

 
We’re collecting empties as a fundraiser today!   

There are many Queen’s students moving out, so we had quite a successful event.

  

We collected door to door, sorted back at the school, and then returned the cans and bottles to the Beer store.  We’re pretty good at sorting!  

This bottle was the biggest one we found.  

This bottle was the strangest one we found. 

In total we made close to $330.  Thanks to all the parents and K-Bots for braving the chilly weather to help out today.

Organizing for post season

Happy Birthday! 
We’re planning for relay for life.

  

Forms and money need to be in ASAP.  We also need to get the robot ready for demos.  

We’re cleaning up all of our mess too.

  

We have a lot of mess.

  

We’ve got a bottle drive on Friday, and the science rendezvous May 9th.  There’s also a Rube Goldberg machine contest to enter if you like.

Remember to ger your Relay forms in!
