Thursday, December 15, 2016

A huge "Congratulations!" once again goes to the St. George's 8th Grade FLL International Robotics Tournament Team, The Bees Knees. At the Louisiana/Mississippi Regional Championship at Holy Cross High School on December 10th, the team won the coveted Judges' Award. They will continue to share their skills and talents at the upcoming Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics Fair held during school on February 3rd, 2017, where they will demonstrate their robotic flower pollinator, their fascinating scientific research and their hands-on battle bot matches!

The members of The Bees Knees team are Sam B., Drew F., James H., Ben L., Evan M., Austin P., Lily T., Alex W., Tulane University's Mentor Andre Rincon Luna, Science Project Coach Ms. Missavage and Head Robotics Coach Mr. Williams. 

Special thanks also goes to Technology Director Wes Ganucheau for his outstanding efforts in 3D printing the team's miniature honey pots which the team created and were presented to help spread the word about saving our threatened state insect the Louisiana Honey Bee, and as thank you gifts, at our most recent tournaments to the many volunteer judges, administrators and referees who help make these STEM experiences possible.
