Minister of Economic Development, Dr. Grant Gibbons visited students from Bermuda High School for Girls (BHS) prior to their departure to Washington DC to compete in the First Global Challenge. This year’s theme revolves around water.
The students were challenged with building a robot that would be able to separate blue plastic balls that represent water molecules from orange plastic balls that represent contamination.
The team consisted of students Nadhiri Simons-Worrell, Yulia Isaeva, Kameron Young, Ashlyn Lee and Katie Grainge, who were congratulated by Dr. Gibbons.
Dr. Gibbons also extended best wishes to teacher Dave Mallon who “has worked tirelessly with the robotics team as mentor and coach”.
He also thanked Paula Harrison who worked with the students on their project and will accompany the team to Washington DC.
