Middle School Robotics

Middle School Robotics Team off to a great start in year one.

What is Robotics? Robotics is an educational extra-curricular activity that teaches students programming, math, project management, teamwork skills, and engineering. The students are in control of the project progress while the coach is there to supervise and assist the students. This year the team is thankful to have the help of Nathan Kalthoff and Noah Kalthoff.
The students will be required to engineer a robot that meets a few standards. The building area must be an 18x18x18 inch cube and the robot must have a max capacity of 8 motors. 
The team will be in an alliance with another VEX Robotics team, an alliance that was assigned at the beginning of the season. However, in the qualifying round teams could be picked to be an ally with one of the qualifying 16 teams. With their alliance, teams will compete against two other teams. The objective is to move blocks into the goals. 
The students compete in a number of tournaments; the Albany VEX Robotics team has competed in two tournaments already. The last tournament is January 7th. Each tournament consists of qualification matches, a Round of 16, quarter finals, semifinals, and finals.

AAMS Student Council

Student Council collects food shelf items to give back to the community.

Albany Area Middle School Student Council has been working on helping the community and giving back to start off this holiday season.

We had a competition between advisories in the Middle School to collect as many food shelf items as possible and then create a fun sculpture. The winning advisory received a movie and popcorn! We then donated all the food and goods collected to the Albany and Avon food shelves.

Along with the food shelf activity we also did the monthly sketch. This month's theme was The Ultimate Thanksgiving Feast. The winner of this sketch for November was Brandon Moritz.

This upcoming month of December we are doing the yearly door decorating competition between advisories. This competition is a fun activity in which the students get to use there creativity and design and fabricate a very festive holiday door decoration for our local nursing home residents to judge. They will decide on the top three doors with the best creativity and holiday cheer!

We are always thrilled to involve the community in our activities in the Middle School.
