Science Fair

From the right: my daughter Allison and her friend Audrey have been doing science fairs projects on mold all through middle school, winning prizes along the way.

FIRST Lego League

FIRST Lego League has been a great program to teach children how to work together and solve hard problems. With the help of Matthew Main, Carl brought this program to Trebein Elementary School. We got donations from corporate sponsors and used it to buy thousands of dollars of LEGO robotics, starting the first school-sponsored team. Keith Slinker helped the schools expand this to a district-wide success.

Trebein PTO Lego League

FIRST Lego League

In 2015, Matt Main and I started the first FLL team with BCS Sponsorship. The briefing to the left is the presentation we gave at the PTO meeting where we asked for help collecting charitable donations from local businesses with which to purchase several thousand dollars worth of supplies. With the support of the Trebein PTO and Principal Lisa Walk, we were off and running!

Since that time, the FLL program in BCS has been a tremendous success. In 2017, Keith Slinker and Bobbie Fiori helped champion and expand the program across all elementary and middle schools in the district.
