Students at Fort Campbell High School are now in the second year of the STEM initiative — Science Technology, Engineering and Math — and are seeing that program grow by leaps and bounds.
Last week, students demonstrated their knowledge of technology and engineering through the use of robots that they designed and built. These robots performed a wide variety of tasks, from moving objects to different locations in a constructed city to solving Rubik's Cube and even racing cars.
Lillian Butler is the faculty adviser for the STEM initiative at FCHS.
"Racing is our theme this year," she said. "We bought this curriculum with little scale-model NASCAR, and we bought some little racing cars to run some races."
