Meet Spike!

Seventh Grade students in Mrs. Whiteford’s Computer Class helped unpack and test the LEGO Spike robots purchased last year through a grant under the AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD) Chapter STEM Kickstarter program. AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a “non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as a forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, information technology, intelligence, and security.”
The AFCEA Central Maryland Kickstarter program awards for initiatives in STEM-related disciplines. SLS received a grant for $5,000 to purchase the LEGO Spike kits to be used in the classroom with Grades 6 through 8. We would like to thank AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD) for their generous donation and look forward to seeing the results of the student’s designing, building, and programming work! #stematsls
