STUDENT ACTIVITES: UC Davis C-STEM Competition 2013

 

The University of California, Davis held its 3rd C-STEM Day earlier this month on May 4th. The event consists of three competitions: RoboPlay Challenge Competition, RoboPlay Video Competition, and Math Programming Competition.Our group of Fairmont Prep students participated in all events. The teams did exceptionally well in both the Math Programming Competition and the RoboPlay Challenge Competition.

We took 2 teams to compete in the RoboPlay video competition this year and they both brought their A game! The RoboPlay video competition requires students to create a video displaying Mobot’s abilities in creative and fun ways. The competition is designed to allow students to express their right brain abilities through writing, art, music, choreography, and film making while expressing their left brain abilities through learning C-STEM subjects and manipulating robot coordination. Both Fairmont teams proved to be up to the challenge and won awards for their respective videos.
The first video titled “Mobot Hulk Dancing Suit & Tie”brilliantly integrated the showcasing of the mobots abilities with an artistic music video using Justin Timberlake’s song “Suit & Tie.” “Mobot Hulk Dancing Suit & Tie” received the well-deserved award for best choreography. You can watch the video here: http://youtu.be/boz0grKM67A. The second video titled “Molympics” played off of the London Olympics on NBC, showing the mobots competing in Olympic events. The group of Prep students behind the creating of“Molypmics” took home 2 awards, winning both Most Interesting Task, as well as Best Overall Video!

Congratulations to both teams for such an amazing showing! This is just another example of Fairmont Prep students showing their ability to be well-rounded students with both analytical and creative skills.
