  • Jacy and his R2D2 Robot

    This year, Friendship has been looking at its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program. At the middle school level, computer programming classes were introduced in grades 6 and 7. Mr. Adamski and Mr. Putnam have been attending monthly STEM workshops offered by CA-BOCES to focus on reimagining the STEM curriculum. At the February meeting all of the school districts in attendance received one Hummingbird Robotics Kit and were charged with having a student create some type of robot.

    When Jacy Gawlak (grade 12) was introduced to the task he thought about creating R2D2, a robot that is featured in a leading role in all of the Star Wars movies. He began thinking about what the Hummingbird kit could do, and how he would accomplish his vision. Jacy put time in on this project during school hours and when school was not in session. On March 12, 2015 he went to the most recent BOCES STEM workshop and presented his robot to school personnel from across Cattaraugus and Allegany counties. He discussed how he programmed the light patterns, robot movements, and sound. Students, teachers, and administrators were impressed with his work and his robot finished first out of all of the submissions. By finishing first, Jacy won a classroom set of robotics kits for FCS. Currently Jacy is working on taking his knowledge to the next level for his senior project. If you are visiting FCS his robot is on display in the front foyer as you enter the school. Congratulations Jacy, and thank you for helping our school build its robotics program!
