Northome students who are a part of robotics will have a new robot to work with this year. High Tech Kids worked with First Lego to obtain a grant from First Lego to purchase the robot materials needed for this year's competition. Eighth graders Brigette Williams, Michaela Williams and freshman Justine Frenzel hold the kits to be used in this year's competition.
This year, will be the 2011 Food Factor Challenge. Over 200,000 9-16 year olds from over 55 countries will explore the topic of food safety and examine the possible points of contamination our food encounters -- from exposure to insects and creatures, to unsterile processing and transportation, to unsanitary preparation and storage -- then find ways to prevent or combat these contaminates.
Last year, Northome School sent two teams on to State Robotics competition.
