ISSEA S.T.E.M. is around the corner!

 

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and was first introduced to ISSEA in 2015 when HIS hosted it. In this year’s ISSEA STEM, HIS student will be travelling to Mozambique to participate in the following events:

Botball: a robot building and programming competition with the goal of completing different missions on the 2017 Botball board.

Maths Olympiads: a math contest with different levels and aspects, a student could participate in the respective grade levels or could challenge themselves by taking a more advanced level.

Science Olympiads: students will be competing in bungee drop, forensics and hovercraft competitions of the Science Olympiad organization. 

Sumobot competition: a competition where students build robots in order for them to fight each other. 

All done under the supervision of Mr. Braden, Dr. Feldt, and Ms Leighton

 

The participating students have been working really hard for this ISSEA . For many this is their first time doing STEM, meaning they have never done robotics but this year they trying out for Botball. Many have been going to school every Saturday and practicing in Ms Leighton’s room on various challenging maths problems.

 

Additionally, the students have been working independently, with hardly any teacher assistance. Independent honest work is all about this is what true education and academic capability is all about, right?

Dr. Feldt, having travelled with the team last year, feels that the HIS botball team would perform much better compared to last year’s, and that perhaps they would get back on top to the placement of 2015’s team that placed 3rd in Botball and 2nd over all. 

 

 

Our best wishes to HIS STEM team.
