28 Jan Support to Harford County Public Schools STEM
OMNI Technologies, LLC is committed to the advancement of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum in our community. Last month OMNI staff met with Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) administrators and staff to donate funding to their STEM program and solidify OMNI’s partnership with HCPS. These funds will be used to procure laptops and a charging cart for the Havre de Grace High School which will support their STEM curriculum this year.
In addition to partnering with HCPS, OMNI staff volunteered at the FIRST Lego League (FLL) qualifier hosted at U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC). This year’s theme was Animial Allies. Children, ages 9-14, were required to research real-world problems related to human interactions with animals. They then created innovative solutions to the problems identified. Teams built and programmed Lego robots to execute a variety of missions ranging from shipping a shark to releasing a panda. The finale was the robotics competition which tested the teams’ ability to have their robots successfully complete each mission for points. Volunteers from OMNI served as judge, general runner, referee and referee assistant. We had a great time and are excited about participating again in the future.
