This week, a group of STEMworks students have been refining their math skills with 3D printing using the program Fusion360. They are currently in the process of creating wax stamps. 8th grader, Gwen Jaramillo, says, “You have to know the exact dimensions and measurements for the product to come out correctly.”
This week, the media students learned how to create a feature story. They developed their interviewing, editing, time-management, and communication skills. Each group created a feature story on a group member with the prompt, “What makes you special?”
On Friday, a group of students attended the AMOS (Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance) Convention where they were able to meet scientist and astronaut, Dr. Janet Kavandi, and had the opportunity to expand their understanding of science and technology from large enterprises such as Boeing and AGI. 8th grader, Hannah Okamoto, explained that she was, “really fortunate to be able to attend the AMOS Convention because I had the opportunity to learn many new things and I got to experience what it would be like to work in the scientific field.”
In media this week, the students teamed up to create ten shot sequences. Each group was given a different media skill and had to create a step-by-step tutorial in just ten shots.
This weekend Jaycie Iha, Samantha Della, Hannah Okamoto, and Logan Tsukiyama took on Hiki No’s Fall Challenge. The prompt was “Walking in Another Person’s Shoes.” Their story was on a local cobbler, Teri Edmonds, who is the owner of “If the Shoe Fits.”
This past weekend, we hosted a fundraiser at Tante’s Island Cuisine to benefit our upcoming travels. A special thanks to the owner, Tante Urban, for donating 100% of the proceeds to our STEMworks club!
In addition, this week was the first week for new media students. Our returnees are busy teaching the new students about editing softwares, cameras, and professionalism. Returnee, Jaime Raigoza, introduces storyboarding to Loea Hue Sing. He enjoys teaching others because, “I want them to grow up and remember how much they’ve learned in the STEMworks club and how much they enjoyed it.”
This Thursday, we also held our second meeting to discuss our fundraiser booth at the fair and different opportunities the STEMworks club offers. Over 70 families attended, and more are soon to come.
Last week in robotics we split the builder team into two groups the lift group and the base group. The base group has finished and the lift group is almost done. Trent of the base group said the best way of getting things done quickly is ” by communicating with each other. “
This week in the programer team they want to program the lift when it is finished. So they make sure there will be no problems when the time comes to start practicing for the competition. Neveah says ” You have to focus to do your best so you can succeed.”
