The ESU 11 Gifted Department has been working on several student selected projects this year. One of those projects is Robotics. The Elwood students created BrushBots and the Wilcox-Hildreth students created MarkerBots. We also visited about how robotics were started and the fact that they complete a job for us. We don’t think the BrushBots will brush our teeth any time soon, but creating and then using them was a lot of fun. We’re not for sure yet where the next Robotics adventure will take us, but we know we will learn in the process.
Elwood’s School Board for 2011 is met with some new faces, as well as being tasked with repairing the school’s roof which was damaged in a hailstorm last fall. You can read more about this from the Kearney Hub article.
