Several students spent the day at Rolling Hills Elementary School to help with Field Day. They assisted the younger students with activities such as bouncy houses and slides. Everyone had a fun day, and the robotics team members enjoyed working with the younger students.
Most of the team was at another activity, but that didn't stop us from giving a tour of the Robotics Lab, College Academy, and Advanced Manufacturing facility at Jemison today. This group hosted by Global Ties Alabama is from Oman, and they enjoyed seeing all that Jemison has to offer. A team member was able to break away from class long enough to give the College Academy/Robotics Lab part of the tour, and he explained several things about our robot.
Mr. Whaley, the Advanced Manufacturing teacher continued the tour with his CAD room, 3D Printing room, Carbon Fiber room, and the Welding building. The group was impressed that a high school had those types of facilities that students can use, and even earn certifications in class.
