November 16, 132 members of the Skrappy Nation participated in the first of a unique joint STEM marketing promotion with the staff of Clarksville Virginia Burnett Library and Learning Center and Bluestone High School. A young member of the Skrappy Nation assisted the Library Staff in issuing a Library Card and checking out two books on advanced robotic designs.
This first of a kind signature event was scheduled from 11 AM to 1:30 PM but did not conclude until 2:00 PM, the normal closing time for the Library Skrappy team members from left to right in the first photograph are Ethan Arnold, Layne Jones and Tristan Adams. The Library Staff are Eileen Barbieri, Joyce Thomas and Vickie Powell.
One family with three home schooled children did not realize they can be a member of the Bluestone High School Club. When they learned that within the last three years, one home schooled female member of the team was the Captain of the Team …. For this family, the joint Stem promotion with the Library helped the Skrappy Nation recruit future members for the Mecklenburg County STEM programs.
Although the opportunity to play catch with Skrappy was very exciting, it is amazing how the Children were interested in a repair (adjusting the chain tensioner) that the drive team effected during this event.
