ELP students compete in robotics meet

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN

Marion-Florence students Derek Stuchlik and Jordan Laurin compete in Totter Ball, one of several events in a robotics meet Feb. 18 in Wamego, at which students from the Hillsboro, Marion-Florence and Peabody-Burns districts competed through the Marion County Special Education Cooperative’s Extended Learning Program. The Hillsboro team placed third in the maze competition, while the Peabody-Burns team took fourth in Capture the Flag. The Kansas Robotics League has provided the MCSEC ELP department with four Lego MindStorms Robotics Invention System kits, thanks to a grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to incorporate project-based learning with basic math, science and technology in Kansas schools. In exchange for receiving these kits, the students in Marion County’s ELP program will compete in the KRL tournament April 8 at Kansas State University.
