The district’s robotics team ¬– the Mechanical Bulls Team 810 – recently participated in a global design competition virtually. The FIRST robotics teams from around the world were invited to a virtual design competition where they were challenged to solve a current world problem with their robotics skills.

Students used Onshape, a web-based CAD system, to design a robot that helps to solve a current world problem. Robotics Team 810 decided to take on litter and pollution on urban streets. Through a series of Google Meets, messages, e-mails and shared design files, the team was able to complete their design along with a three-page essay highlighting the process and concept of the robot.

The team’s robot is designed to pick up garbage through two inwardly rotating brushes, angled in a way to create a vortex that maximizes trash pickup. At the virtual awards ceremony on May 29, the Mechanical Bulls placed #87 out of 150 teams in 10 countries.

Students at Dogwood Elementary School recently listened to the book “The Giant Hug” by Sandra Horning. They followed a hug on its heartwarming adventure through the postal system all the way to Granny’s house. They learned that mail carriers play a very important role in the community. Students expressed their gratitude for delivery workers who are working extra hard to provide essential goods as safely and efficiently as possible during this time. They posted pictures and letters to display outside their homes to show their appreciation. Many students also made sweet care baskets filled with snacks to show their gratitude.
