We are looking for a person or people to coordinate our elementary robotics program. Details are below. No robotics experience is necessary! E-mail oconnord@alconaschools.net if you are interested. Hello! I am happy to announce that VexIQ Robotics will be happening this year! Take a look at this year's new challenge... VEX IQ Challenge Squared Away. A few housekeeping items: Please complete the attached form to verify team members, team mentor/coach, and school principal. When choosing a mentor... The mentor DOES NOT NEED a background or experience in robotics. What has worked well in the past are individuals who are passionate about working with students throughout the building and design process and are willing to monitor the students in such a way that will increase cooperation and to prevent loss or damage to the equipment. Not sure how to choose which of your awesome current 4th and 5th grade students? Touch base with their 3rd and 4th grade teachers from last year for recommendations regarding who might be interested in applying STEM applications in a more hands-on and cooperative way. Please add to your calendars the following dates: Scrimmage 1 - October 24 (Thursday) Registration begins at 5:30 pm Scrimmage begins promptly at 6:00 pm Ends approximately 7:30 pm Scrimmage 2 - October 29 (Tuesday) Registration begins at 5:30 pm Scrimmage begins promptly at 6:00 pm Ends approximately 7:30 pm Tournament - November 9 (Saturday) Registration begins at 8:30 am Scrimmage begins promptly at 9:00 am Ends after awards approximately around 1:30 pm Helpful Resources: REC Foundation - https://www.roboticseducation.org/vex-iq-challenge/

In Michigan, there are approximately 13,000 children in foster care. Right here in the Alcona/Iosco area we have over 90 kids in foster care and only 27 foster homes to care for these children. Foster Care identifies and places children in safe homes when they cannot remain with their families because of safety concerns. Foster families provide these children with the consistency and support they need to grow. What it Takes to be a Foster Parent? Foster children need caring individuals who can provide a safe and nurturing home. The primary goal during foster care is to reunite the child with his or her parents. This can take some time - we need caring adults who are willing to provide stability and safety for children in their care. For more information go to www.michigan.gov/hopeforahome or call 1-855-MICHKIDS.

The physics classes had a guest from Harvard come in last week to introduce the students to quantum physics. Elizabeth Himwich taught the students for a week about advanced physics topics and Peter Mapes took interested students on a flight at the airforce base. The students learned how to take off and land the plane as well as simulated zero gravity and 2G. This allowed the students to experience the science that they learned about in the classroom.
