Floyd MS Students Participate In “GoIT” STEM Camp


Rising sixth grade students at Floyd Middle School eagerly participated in a “GoIT” STEM Camp on June 24-26 sponsored by Tata Consulting Services. Students were energized and encouraged to embrace learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math related careers through this highly engaging and rewarding experience.  They enjoyed learning how to build and program robots, code, compete, and prepare presentations.   Tata Consulting Services donated six EV3 Mindstorm Robots and a Nextbook Android Tablet to Floyd to continue its STEM promotion.  Additionally, students participating on the top three teams each received rewards for their team collaboration and presentations.  For example, the third place team of five students each received $25 Wal Mart Gift Cards; the second place team received $50 Wal Mart Gift Cards.  Finally, the first place team of five students each received a Nextbook Android Tablet.  TCS and volunteers from Home Depot facilitated the STEM Camp as a school partnership activity with Floyd Middle School.
