Clark members Anna and Daniel went with Mr. Black to Roosevelt Middle School at 9:45. While there, they showed off Snapdragon in action to the students. Afterwards, Mr. Dall gave a wondrous presentation on why Clark Magnet High School is a good school to go to. The Clark students returned to school at 12.
Some members also traveled down to Lincoln Elementary School. Jonna, Lauren, Luke, and Samuel went with Maggie – a Clark student – to assist the Lincoln Lego Robotics in their tasks. Heading down a little after 2:20, the members returned at 4:00.
It was around 6:15 that mentor Mariam accompanied Alexander, Mika, and Anthony K. along with Robotics’ Alumni Armand T. left Clark with Mr. Black to go to the Roosevelt Parents’ presentation that our principal Mr. Dall led.
The presentation went off without a hitch, and was a spectacular success. It ended after 7:30.
Mika, Alexander, Jonna, and Alexander K. traveled to Toll Middle School at 9:45 to assist in a presentation. Upon arriving, they helped get Snapdragon into the auditorium where Mr. Dall was going to present to the Toll students. After Robotics members drove around Snapdragon for a little to inspire the students Mr. Dall began the presentation on why they should consider going to Clark Magnet High School. The Robotic members would return back to Clark at 12:00.
Clark students and Robotics members Samuel, Lauren, Anna, and Mika left Clark for Wilson Middle School at 1:55. Mr. Dall gave a very heart warming speech, utilizing the Robotics members and their robot – Snapdragon.
After some Wilson students talked with the Robotics members about getting in to Clark, they left the amphitheater in awe and shock, feeling that Clark might be the right choice for them. But this wasn’t where the Robotics members left, no, they stayed for the parent presentation at 6:30.
They used the precious time between presentations to plan out the coming week and to discuss what was needed to succeed as a team.
The parent presentation mirrored the student presentation, but targeted towards parents of viable Clark students. This assembly lasted until 7:30, at which point the Robotics members packed up to leave.
Select Robotics members Lauren, Anna, and Daniel accompanied Mr. Black down to Rosemont Middle School this day. Leaving Clark at around 9:45, they were to help Mr. Dall present to 8th graders in the school gym about why they should consider Clark as their High School.
Mr. Dall, principal of Clark Magnet High School, gave a presentation to the Rosemont students. This presentation included videos and student works.
Throughout this performance, the Robotics members drove around Snapdragon to show a little of what Robotics does at Clark.
Lauren, Anna, and Daniel returned back to Clark at 12:00.
The day had finally arrived – Presentation Day! That time of Robotics season finally arrived, where every sub-team gets to present what it is they do for the club, with every member (present) participating. And it started right after the team photo.
All teams spoke in front of their fellow members and mentors, being graded and questioned after each presentation. The whole process took approximately four hours from 3:00 to 7:00, with a brief break in the middle.
The audience were very polite of course, maintaining silence during the presentations and applauding at the end of each one.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for…the pictures of our wonderful teams conducting their presentations.
