SOF Robotics

Our HS Robotics team, SOF RC, participated in the First Tech Challenge event qualifier at Manhattan Center HS on Sunday, November 19.

Robotics2017

 

This was a great opportunity for our team to test our robot and practice the challenges on a real field and for our students to collaborate with other schools and students. ( Image: Our students describing the robot design process to the judges).

We ended up on the 13th place out of 25 teams and were nominated for getting an ‘Innovation’ award for our robot design and strong team collaboration skills.

Even though we’re still a beginner team in our 2nd year, our students gained the necessary confidence and skills to approach challenges at the competition level. We were able to assist a couple of other teams to troubleshoot their Java programming code, one of them part of the consortium schools.

Our next event will be at John Dewey in Brooklyn on Dec 10th, join us for the next Qualifier.

Yoga in School

We are thrilled to have the Karma Kids Yoga program share the benefits of yoga with the 6th grade! 

YogaHersheyKiss  Hershey Kiss Pose

Twice every week, students get on the yoga mat to stretch and strengthen their bodies, learn important breathing exercises and relaxation techniques as well as learn tools to help navigate the teen years.  They’re learning basic and challenging poses, group and partner poses, and participate in activities that build confidence and self-esteem, focus and concentration, community, and a sense of well-being and calm.

By the second class, all students were challenging themselves with arm balances (great for building core strength and confidence) and partner flying planks (builds core and back strength, teamwork).  They all enjoyed deep relaxation time with the scent of lavender.
