RMS Hour of Code

Romulus Middle School’s students, teachers, and parents participated in The Hour of Code global event on December 7. Participants were challenged with a fun introduction to computer science through Star Wars. Students started with writing codes for a Star Wars game and then went on to Minecraft, Disney’s Frozen, Angry Birds, and Plants vs. Zombies. The fun doesn’t have to stop, HourOfCode.com offers hundreds of one-hour activities that are completely free and are offered all year long.

United States Patent and Trademark Office Visits

A guest speaker from the USTPTO came to RMS last week. 40 students took part in the presentation learning about patents, trademarks, and intellectual property. The students learned the basics and asked great questions. The students also had the opportunity to build a kazoo based off of an expired James West patent. The presentation was hands-on and informative.

Learning Beyond the Classroom

40 Middle School students had the opportunity to visit the Henry Ford Museum last week. Students were able to visit the hands-on Pixar Exhibit and hands-on Mathematica Exhibit. During the Pixar Exhibit, students saw the process and explored the science and technology behind some of the most beloved animated films and their characters. The interactive exhibit showcased the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts used by the artists and computer scientists who helped bring Pixar’s films to the big screen. The Matematica Exhibit offered as sense math all around you.
