Working Hard and Having Fun

Day 30:  Today, we made lots of progress on our chairman’s presentation and video! We had a quick meeting with our chairman’s presenters to work on some of the aspects of our presentation.

We will continue to play with them so that we can choose the one that works the best for us!

Since our school’s focus program carousel is quickly approaching, some of our mentors worked hard to prepare a display board to show everyone how much fun we are having! The Robotics focus program will run second semester next year.

We would like to thank Northern Safety and Industrial for sending us these cool safety-glasses converters that turn regular eye glasses into safety glasses! We had lots of fun trying them out, and we think this is such a neat idea!
We had a great dinner, once again provided by one of our fabulous parents! We were eager to step in and help with food prep!
