On February 21, a group of nine elementary-age students (seven being from STS) participated in a local FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League, where they learned about robotics, team work and real-world problems. Emily Beingessner ’24, Dimitri Girgulis ’24, Zach Rosza ’24, Bryson Hajee ’24, Anusha Singh ’24, Kaya Singha ’24 and Karma Singha ’26 were tasked with solving a problem relating to hydrodynamics. Inspired by a local Alberta man who freed a fish cinched by a bottle wrapper, the STS students developed a robotic “Aqua-Arm” prototype in hopes to educate people on the effects of pollution. STS students are empowered to make a difference and encourage everyone to be life-long learners in their communities.
