WMS Horticulture

WMS Horticulture has begun the process to construct a 3500 sq ft community garden on campus. This will be run by our new garden club. We are in need of free wood chips. If any one knows a tree service that can drop off their wood chips we would put them to good use.

The garden club had its first meeting with 25 potential members present.

Hydroponics is 70% completed and we hope to be up and running by spring break.

WMS Computer Programming/Lego Robotics

Mr. Britt’s WMS LEGO team is trying to pull everything together for our upcoming State Championship on March 4th.  Some last minute changes to the robot trying and gain an extra 40 points is the team strategy. The team is thinking they need 100 points in the Robot competition to place in the top 75%.  Put that together with a strong showing in the other categories may place them somewhere in the top 4 teams.
