The Academy’s lower school robotics team is on a mission to tackle the 2015 FLL Challenge, “Trash Trek.”

“Trash Trek” asks students to research and investigate which type of trash is most commonly found in their communities. After doing so, the team will brainstorm several ways of disposing or reusing the trash they encounter.

The team visited Times Supermarket and spoke to the seafood department representative to decide which trash they will evaluate. After the visit, students decided to pursue the project, focusing on styrofoam trays.

Fourth grade teacher Lacey Teshima and sixth grade teacher Jennifer Arthur are requesting that other students contribute to the project, by bringing in styrofoam trays until Oct. 9. In addition, the team has a survey (http://goo.gl/forms/5HVsvVoZDR) concerning the use of styrofoam trays.

With the help of the entire student body, the lower school robotics team hopes to put together a presentation that will impress judges in the exhibition which will take place in November.
