AEMS Lego Robotics
AEMS is trying to get a Lego Robotics Club up and running.
Legos Robotics makes it fun and engaging to learn using Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Lego Robotics combines science and mathematics concepts with creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills, boosting 21st century learning skills. All projects follow a design engineering process as used by engineers in various industries. Throughout the process students gain and use knowledge of science, technology and mathematics as they engineer a solution.
Funding for robotics kits are a challenge. Please contact Principal Jane Slayton if you are interested in helping. (email@example.com or 603-735-5400). Thank You!
On Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 9:26 and 53 seconds, both a.m. and p.m., Pi was represented to 10 digits: 3.141592653. This will be the one and only Pi Day in the next 100 years that will actually reflect the first five numbers (ten if you count the time) in everyone’s favorite irrational number, Pi.
Pi Day was celebrated at AEMS on Monday, March 16, 2015. Students were given the challenge to memorize and then recite as many digits of Pi as they could during their lunch period. Everyone received a Pi pencil!
AEMS had 61 participants in grades K-8th who gave it a shot to try to recite as many digits of Pi as they could. All participants were given a “Pi-e” treat at the end of the school day.
