Paxton's Middle School STEM Club participated in a Lego competition Saturday, January 20. Prior to the expo, students were challenged to devise ways to improve the use of water. They decided to focus on the people of Guatemala. Students developed a plan to deliver water to the community by creating a reservoir at high elevation on the mountain with pipes that run down two different points throughout the community.
The day of the competition, students participated in three interviews, and presented a values poster where they were tasked with explaining how they worked as a team displaying professionalism, and what this project has meant to them. In addition, the group presented their robotics design and explained how they work together as a team to overcome challenges, as well as presented the robot they designed and explained how they problem solved to come up with the attachments they created.
