In The Spotlight
On January 17th, members of the Crete-Monee Robotics Team participated in the Southworks Engineering and Robotics Networking Showcase at Prairie State.
The showcase provided students the opportunity to demonstrate
projects that were previously built or currently being worked on. In addition to displaying their work for manufacturing companies, students also had the opportunity to eat lunch with several representatives from local manufacturing companies to learn about the career opportunities in robotics and engineering here in the south suburbs.
Southworks Robotics is an organization dedicated to encouraging students in the STEM fie
lds in the south suburbs. Their activities include organizing the Showcase, as well as robotics competitions.
In addition, they support student robotics clubs, support STEM programs in the community, provide students with access to industry experts, and expose young people to career opportunities in the STEM fields.
CMHS students that participated were Agnes Mefful, Nina Little, Dana Luquingan, Beija Teolis, Jazlyn Smith, August Fox, Umangkumar Kalaria, and Nick Battaglia. The CMHS family is so proud of their accomplishments!
