Robobusters Awarded 3000 Grant

The Robobusters, Team 5057, has competed in the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2014. They have over 50 members and are sponsored by Dr. Strong in TAG .Though the majority of members are from SEM, Team 5057 has students from all six schools in Townview Magnet Center. The team is split into four divisions: Build, Programming, CAD, Business.

This past Wednesday, the Robobusters were invited to present their team and its accomplishments to Ambit Energy. Ambit has graciously given a grant of $3000 to help further Team 5057’s goal of improving both the Oak Cliff and Townview community through robotics. Ambit provided several mentors so members can learn STEM from a professional standpoint and improve both their own and the team’s abilities. The Robobusters thank Ambit for this opportunity and are excited about what is to come.

Note: If you are interested in joining, come to room 306 after school on Wednesday or text @robobuster to 81010 to join the remind.

American Mathematics Competition Sign Up

Maa American Mathematics Competitions

SEM will be administering the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) on February 7th, 2019. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are both 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. If you are interested in participating in this competition, please sign up at tinyurl.com/SEMAMC. The deadline to sign up is November 30th.

The AMC is the first in a series of competitions that are used to select students for the US team of the International Mathematics Olympiad. Students who do well on the AMC will be invited to participate in the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). Some highly selective schools such as MIT have a space on their application for AMC and AIME. These exams give you exposure to advanced math questions and can provide a great place to start learning more math. All SEM students that are interested are encouraged to sign up. Contact Mr. Newton with questions.
