Westview had five of our six teams compete this past weekend and they did pretty well compared to our previous events. All five teams are now scoring on multiple objects and two of them are hanging with some of the High School teams (Andromeda and The Creators). Andromeda was the highest scoring team in the Programming Skills Challenge beating some of the HS teams in the process. Unfortunately, they did not have that as an award this time but they were given special recognition. They did win a unique award made up from one of the High School teams hosting.
Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a conference for girls in middle school. This day-long event will include hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Thanks to a very generous donation from our friends at a local company, Sticker Giant, Westview staff and students are now tinkering and creating with a 3D printer. Our robotics students dove right in and began making parts for their VEX robots. Today, students were using software to design a battery holder to see the possiblilites that this printer can create for students to be innovative. A big, huge thank you to Sticker Giant for this partnership.
