At our middle school, we have over 1,000 students who are happy, actively engaged, and continually setting records for academic achievement. We have a variety of sports teams, clubs and extracurricular activities that provide every student an opportunity for greater school involvement. We have families and community members who support our school in so many ways.
Our motto is “Standard of Excellence.” We live this statement every day.
Our expectations for students are high and they deliver. Our teachers are highly competitive and strive to have our students performing at their highest potential. Additionally, we consistently have championship teams, winning programs and individual students who achieve individual accolades. In short, our students are winners!
We believe middle school students need to enjoy school and have school spirit to engage themselves in the educational process. In our Greenpower Tech class, we have three 6th graders, four 7th graders, and eight 8th graders. Five of them are girls, and two are African American. These 15 middle schoolers filled out a 2-page application and were selected from over 100 interested students. Many of them had no experience working with tools at all. In this class, they’re getting to do things they might not anywhere else.
This GoPro package will allow our team to both document performance, as well as use the available telemetry data to analyze our races. The GoPro telemetry will tap into the GPS capabilities of the HERO6 Black by capturing data about our GPS path, speed, altitude, g-force, elevation gain, and more. The results can be overlaid as graphics on our videos, making our content more meaningful and providing benchmarks and milestones for our experiences. It will also allow students to have the necessary information to make a more informed decision when choosing the gearing for the different racetracks where we compete.
