Russell students create wearable tech- Bring on Makers’ Space

photoRussell students were able to learn about programming and code using Arduino.  The Assistance League provided the money for the project through a Links for Learning grant.  Students had to use old time technology:  stitching with a needle and thread, and new technology: coding the lilypad to program the blinking light.  Everyone got to take their patch and their lilypad home.  Thank you to the Gillis family:  Kevin, Rhonda, John, Paul and Andrew,  for coordinating this project, to Hardy Pottinger for the idea and all of the time and effort, and to Alan and Sam Spell who step up to every challenge and support all of our students.

Congratulations to the Russell students who participated in the 2014 Engineering Challenge at the University of Missouri:  Aria Baker, Jerica Jackson (Fairview),  Katelyn Wang, Emmett and Liam Pottinger, Asa Smith and Sam Spell (West Middle School).   A special thank you to our parent mentors Alan Spell and Hardy Pottinger and our high school mentor John Gillis.

Russell was recognized by the judges for excellent teamwork.  This was emphasized during the award ceremony as the most important part of the process and required strong communication skills.  As the recipient of the award, the Russell team was asked to talk about our program.  Alan Spell spoke about the need for strong parent and teacher commitment, and the need for the hands on experience in education and how robotics helps to meet that need.  Congratulations to Russell and in particular  Team #2  Sam and Emmett.
