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!

Thanks to the Limestone Learning Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the Limestone Learning Foundation for our team. 

There are so many amazing projects that are funded by the LLF, it was great to hear about all of the creative initiatives that are talking place in the community.

We are proud to have the continued support of the LLF for another year.

Congratulations Colleen!

We’re thrilled to celebrate, along with the Limestone District School Board, the outstanding service of one of our mentors, Colleen Johnson. 

It’s a very good day for robotics mentors, as another recipient of the Outstanding Service Award is Michael Bird, from the Cyberfalcons!



We appreciate the time and energy that has been devoted to our team, and to the robotics community in Kingston.



Their names will be on this plaque soon!

Post Season Planning



We’re gearing up for postseason activities.  Demos are being planned, robot repairs are happening, and we’re figuring out how to celebrate the end of the season.  So far we’re planning an ice cream party at lunch, and a team trip to go blacklight bowling.

Next Monday, the 13th, we are holding a debriefing meeting after school for students, and later for mentors.  Start thinking of constructive suggestions for next year, and how you can step up and lead.
