Erin Puckette '15 and Sophia Yao '17 program their robot “Ji Qi Ren” to autonomously navigate a maze using an infrared sensor and simple math.

Not knowing where the maze would begin or end, each team was required to program their robot to find its way out. Only one robot, however, was able to find its way out in ever scenario, and that was “Ji Qi Ren.” When encountering a wall, “Ji Qi Ren” scanned its surroundings, and measured distances to obstacles (walls) to its right and left. It compared the distances and determined which one was greater. “Ji Qi Ren” then “chose” to turn towards the greatest distance. Simple solution. Advanced thinking. Outstanding programming.

Team Ji Qi Ren completes the Maze challenge. Click on the link below to watch the video.

As we approach Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 19, we take a moment to remember our country's brave civil rights leaders, including Dr. King's wife, Coretta Scott King. Mrs. King played a prominent role in the Civil Rights Movement during the years after her husband's 1968 assassination taking on the leadership of the struggle for race equality herself. She was also a staunch believer in female equality and was a key figure in the Women's Movement of the 1970s.

Ashley Hall’s 8th grade class had a lot of reasons to say “Yay” recently…and “nay,” for that matter! Democracy was alive and well recently when the 8th grade joined more than 350 students from public and private schools across the state to participate in the South Carolina YMCA Youth in Government Program’s 9th annual Middle School Model Legislature.

Student delegates took over the South Carolina Statehouse, standing at the very podiums of our legislators and debating issues in the actual House and Senate Chambers!
