Extra-curricular Enrichment

Congratz to the Mighty Mo’ Education Program!

HelpingTeamA big “Congratulations!” to the USS Missouri’s Education Team on hosting their 20th on-board robotics challenge!

A little background: In 2009, HI FusionED partnered with the USS Missouri’s Education Team and Community Partner, Dwayne Abuel, to develop an on-board robotics program for students. Not only did program activities reinforce 21st century skills development, it focused on the history of “the Mighty Mo'” through a challenge-based robotics mission, originally designed by Mr. Abuel. USSM educators, Dan Parsons and Neil Yamamoto, have taken the original program framework and have developed it into a rigorous, enriching and engaging learning experience for students.

“This program was a perfect learning activity for our students. We loved the way that the entire activity incorporated math, writing, technology and, especially, team-building skills.” – Hau‘ula Elementary School educator

HI FusionED wishes the USSM on-board robotics program continued success!
