Ms. Ronda Hair took 3 of our ALC students to the Adobe I-Heart-Tech Conference that Adobe hosted recently.

There were close to 350 students who attended. 

The workshops were based on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education. In a robotics workshop, students faced several programming challenges. The final task was to have their “mBot” robot follow a curving black path. The team with the fastest robot advanced and raced other teams. The coveted prize was Fitbits for the fastest bot.

Workshop Partners included:
Adobe: Programming and racing “mBot” robots
Adobe: Websites
Always: User-generated content (UGC)
Ancestry: DNA
Brainstorm: Machine learning technologies
Franklin Labs: Vascular technology
The Leonardo Museum: Engineering meets art meets science
Thanksgiving Point: Biomimicry; how nature influences engineering
U of U Chem Lab: Chemistry careers​
Vivint: Prototypes, failure, and learning

The students who attended from the ALC were Emily Burch, McKennah Watson, & Lexi Sorensen. The girls had a great time and loved the challenges. 

With the connections that were made during this field trip, ALC students can now look forward to participating in several upcoming field trips for all students.
