Franciscan Sister Mary Frances Maher shares about a Robotics Competition at St. Mary School, Hilbert, WI.
Recently, Sisters Marlene Schwaller, Shirley Spilker, Julie Ann Sheahan, Charles Ann Champeau and I traveled to Hilbert, St. Mary’s, to support the children involved in a Robotics Competition. Third through sixth graders along with a teacher advisor, showed their skills of programming and running their robots. There were 4 groups of 4 students plus a teacher.
It was a lot of fun to watch the Star Wars themed groups compete. Prizes were awarded at all levels and included some 3-D printed Star Wars figures! We were impressed at the knowledge and the skill that was shown.
A nice crowd was on hand to watch the action with Darth Vader making an entrance at the end of the program. Sister Marlene and I were proud of what the students had accomplished as we had previously seen them in their early stages. I would like to attend their programming classes sometime. Faculty are deserving of praise!More pictures on Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity facebook page.
