Robotics – The Bane of Bionic Polar Bears: At the end of December the team was working hard towards the teams qualifier event Saturday Jan 21st 2017 at Covenant Christian School in Panama City. Please make a note so you can come out and support the team. The team have been working hard to achieve a greater degree of difficulty in this years table runs which will help them score higher points in robot design as well. This has meant a lot of trouble shooting, which ended up going all the way back to the Lego lab. Somehow we managed to find an issue no one else had with the Gyro sensor. Very proud of the team’s hard work on solving this. When we return in the New Year they will present the project to the USFWS and FWC 9th January. We will have a lot of practicing in the run up to the qualifier event.

The Virtue of the Month is Fidelity:   being faithful to promises and commitments.

How can we grow in the virtue of Fidelity as a family?

  • As a family, commit a special time each night to pray together.
  • Pray: Come Holy spirit, open our minds and hearts to God’s living Word!
  • Read and discuss Psalm 116:10-19 as a family.
  • Discuss the following together:

Think of priest, religious or married people who have been faithful for a lifetime. Do you think fidelity was always easy for them?

How do you think they remained faithful?
