On April 20, Sebastian Rojas, who is a 7th grader at Stewart MS participated in the annual BotBall Robotics competition. Sebastian and other 6th and 7th grade males who worked on a software and mechanical engineering and robotics project had competed against 27 other regional teams. The YMIC Foundation Inc. Neptune team placed 13th out of 27. Sebastian was very instrumental in designing an effector arm which grabbed color palms to score points. He was required to understand and control a servo motor for an arm motion and a claw as well. Sebastian plans to return to the YMIC research center this summer to prepare for next year’s competition. Sebastian is also the President of the Norristown chapter of YMIC Foundation Inc.
Stewart Middle School is thankful to get support from many local businesses. Chap’s Restaurant is located in West Norriton. This year they supported SMS children by providing Holiday Raffle prizes. Every year Chap’s sponsors our Reading Olympics team that competes in the county competition. Special thanks to Chap’s for their financial support to our programs!
“Stewie” the new Stewart Wildcat mascot was introduced to the students and faculty at the start of the Winter2012/2013 Sports Season. Mr. Brislin (Athletic Coordinator) wanted to add some spirit and excitement to our school as well as to the wildcat athletic program. With the help of some school organizations, we were able to purchase our mascot for all kinds of student activities. Special thanks go to the Music Boosters, the Parent Faculty Club, the Student Council and Principal Walls for supporting the idea and contributing to bringing Stewie Home.
