The Devastators are Going to The World Championship! They will be traveling to St. Louis, MO to compete April 22-26. Please congratulate the team members and wish them luck as the travel to compete against the best robotics teams from around the globe!
Their registration costs will be covered by FIRST in TX, which is AWESOME! However, they are still needing sponsors to help them with their travel costs, which includes transportation, lodging, and meals for the students. If you are able to assist in any way or know someone or a company that can - please contact Ms. Cortez at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dr. Sahin, of Harmony's research department has announced a new book focused on Harmony's approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, is now available for purchase. The book is titled STEM Students on the Stage (SOS).
The STEM S.O.S. model is a rigorous interdisciplinary STEM teaching approach that is teacher facilitated, student-centered and directed through sequenced set of student projects. In contrast to the other PBL models in the market, this model is standards-focused and substantial part of PBL completion takes place out of classroom in a digital environment. The book provides insight into Harmony's practices. It also shares data with the education community on how this approach has impacted students.
