Washington Island School ramping up its science focus

By Tim Kowols

 

With dinosaurs and robots as recent visitors, Washington Island School is making sure its students’ attention to science does not disappear. The school’s technology and science committee is working with local universities and colleges to continue bringing in additional programming now they have kids more engaged. By partnering with UW-Stevens Point’s Steven Schmidt, Washington Island students recently got to build robot-operated vehicles that are expected to traverse across Rock Island next spring as they learn more about robotics. Principal Michelle Kanipes says it is exciting to see students get more involved in science and engineering.

 

 

Kanipes sees more programming occurring at the Trueblood Performing Arts Center in the near future such as presentations on astronomy and water quality.
